A wonderful rendering of the most popular English folklore heroic outlaw, Robin Hood, this book tells the adventures of the Yeomen thief of the Sherwood Forest in a very captivating manner.
Robin Hood, the young earl of Huntington, kills one of the king’s deer after a challenge with some foresters. He is then sentenced to death by the king, but he escapes the punishment and takes refuge in the Sherwood Forest. There he gathers together a band of outlaws, and they call themselves the ‘Merry Men’. Robin Hood claims leadership over his comrades by his skills of shooting and fighting and lives by the principle – to rob the rich and give the poor.
