    Tales of a Traveller by Washinton Irving is a mostly interesting read The book is a collection of small stories with the author serving only as a means to hear these tales from other characters in the book The locales and stories vary greatly, ranging from good fun, to morals of living, toserious tones of dangers and trials It is truly enjoyable in that it is hard to tell where the story will go sometimes between the different tales A must read for lovers of 19th century literature
