The valley known as Sleepy Hollow hides from the world in the high hills of New York state. Many stories are told about the quiet valley. But the story that people believe most is about a man who rides a horse at night.
The story says the man died many years ago during the American Revolutionary War. His head was shot off. Every night he rises from his burial place, jumps on his horse, and rides through the valley looking for his lost head.
