While riding home from the party, Ichabod is “as pale as a tombstone” and flinches at the sound of a wolf (p. 14).

      Life in the Hudson River Valley in 1790 was not easy. America was a brand-new country and the American Revolution was still fresh in people’s minds (p. 12). Most people still lived on farms and were responsible for producing their own food and making their own clothing (p. 16). Young boys had to wake up early to help their fathers by harvesting crops, fishing, and hunting. During harvest time, working on the farm took priority over going to school (p. 16). School was held in a one-room schoolhouse and all of the students were taught by one teacher (p. 16). Teachers at the time were not paid well and had to depend on their students’ parents for food and shelter (p. 13). People entertained themselves by telling stories—many of them ghost stories based on memories of the American Revolution (p. 14, p. 16).
