Legends and Lore of Sleepy Hollow and the Hudson Valley

A storyteller examines Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” and the lore that inspired it, as well as other local legends of the Hudson Valley. The story of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman is one of America's best-known fables, but what other stories does the Hudson Valley hold? Imps cause mischief on the Hudson River, a white lady haunts Raven Rock, Major Andre’s ghost seeks redemption and real headless Hessians search for their severed skulls. These mysterious and spooky tales from the region’s past inspired Irving and continue to captivate the imagination to this day. “Kruk has been enchanting audiences with his dramatic, enticing storytelling ability for 20 years.”—Suzanne Rothberg, Tarrytown-Sleepy Hollow Patch

Hidden History of the Lower Hudson Valley

Today's travelers between New York City and Albany are more familiar with the Thruway than with the old Albany Post Road. But for centuries, this was the main highway between the Big Apple and the capital, and many exciting events occurred along its path in the Lower Hudson Valley. The Dutch Philipse family of Sleepy Hollow engaged in piracy, and tales of such misdeeds from the region inspired Washington Irving to write some of his most beloved stories. Later, prisoners used the road as an escape route from the original Sing Sing prison. During Prohibition, a "beer hose" ran through Yonkers, allegedly placed along the route by beer baron Dutch Schultz. With illustrations by Tatiana Rhinevault, local historian Carney Rhinevault uncovers the stories hidden behind the old mile markers of the Albany Post Road.

The Catskill Witch and Other Tales of the Hudson Valley

"Drawing freely from New York folk and Indian lore, from literature, history, and his own imagination, James Burton McMurry has fashioned sixteen fanciful tales of unforgettable characters inhabiting the region of the Hudson Valley. Some of the stories, here retold in a simple and lucid style, are old favorites. They are joined by nine new stories which take their places here naturally and compatibly. Readers of Washington Irving will recognize the major figure in "Anthony's Nose," who here returns from the shores of Spuyten Duyvil to find a wife and a whole new set of adventures. "Pokepsie" and "The Saranac Wizard" are based on the old Indian legends, as was the title story, and "The Ramapo Salamander" has roots in an old English or German tale. McMurry notes that the terrible Ogress of Claverack recently passed through those parts again, enabling the author to get the story first hand, and ruins of the troll house under the White Clay Kill bridge are still there. The children of Tivoli have reported that the troll Eyesore can be seen just as it's getting dark at night. The mists of fable gather here around the storyteller on the banks of the beautiful Hudson River, to the delight of children of all ages. After experiencing these tales, the reader might be able the better to see old Teunis, the Dutch-speaking giant who roars in the Catskills." -- Provided by Publisher
