Synopsis

Ten classic stories from authors who have masterfully captured the American experience.

Irving's incredible and amusing tale of the archetypal "Rip Van Winkle" relates the story of a man who slept through history.

Stephen Crane's "The Red Badge of Courage" tells of a young soldier who must struggle with his conscience no matter what the consequences.

"The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" is Mark Twain's hilarious story of a contest to end all contests in the rowdy days of the Forty-Niners.

Edgar Allan Poe's "The Man of the Crowd" tells of one man's strange fascination with another.

"The Ransom of Red Chief" is O. Henry's tale of a kidnapping that goes horribly, horribly, wrong.

"Miss Tempy's Watchers" by Sarah Orne Jewett speaks of the power of friendship.

Kate Chopin's lovely "Desiree's Baby" tells the poignant story of one woman's search for her past.

Jack London's acclaimed "The Call of the Wild" is a thrilling adventure of nature and survival.

Edith Wharton pens a chilling ghost story in the atmospheric "The Eyes."

And "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" is F. Scott Fitzgerald's wry and amusing tale of a young lady's struggle for social success.
