About This Book
The adventuresome young man, Robin of Locksley, doesn’t have a worry in the world—until one day when a drunken man working for the King shoots an arrow at him.
Robin’s aim is better, to his lasting regret, and he becomes an outlaw subject to capture and hanging. Before long, however, Robin attracts a hearty band of other outcasts to Sherwood Forest. Their only wish is to lead a free, merry existence while doing any kindness they can for the downtrodden. If it means making sport with the authorities, so much the better. Little do they know that their deeds will grow into a timeless story.
