Robin Hood

J. Walker McSpadden

Book Overview: 

Robin Hood is a heroic outlaw in English folklore. A highly skilled archer and swordsman, he is known for "robbing from the rich and giving to the poor", assisted by a group of fellow outlaws known as his "Merry Men". Traditionally Robin Hood and his men are depicted wearing Lincoln green clothes. The origin of the legend is claimed by some to have stemmed from actual outlaws, or from ballads or tales of outlaws.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Sheriff of Nottingham beside you?" quoth the other pompously.

Robin scratched his head.

"They do say that Robin Hood and his men care little for the Sheriff," he said.

"Pooh!" said the Sheriff. "I would not give that for their lives, if I could once lay hands upon them." And he snapped his fingers angrily. "But Robin Hood himself was on this very road the last time I came to town," said the other.

The Sheriff started at the crackling of a twig under his horse's feet, and looked around.

"Did you see him?" he asked.

"Aye, that did I! He wanted the use of this mare and cart to drive to Nottingham. He said he would fain turn butcher. But see!"

As he spoke he came to a turn in the road, and there before them stood a herd of the King's deer, feeding. Robin pointed to them and continued:

"There is my herd of cattle, good Master Sheriff! How do you like them? Are they not fat and fair to se. . . Read More

I really did like this retelling of the classic tale of Robin Hood. It was just how I would have pictured it, and I even learned something about the plot that I hadn't known before. I recommend this for anyone who wants a light read, as this is a nice quick to read book.

Classic and timeless tale done well

Delightful escapism, with a bent for mild violence. A stereotypical "book for boys", but a whole lot of fun.

Charming adventures that alternate between Robin being petulant to just the person he was looking for, Robin trading clothing with some dude in order to trick his enemies, Robin winning an archery contest, or some combination of the three.

Great story as readers head to Sherwood forest and follow Robin Hood and his gang of thieves, who by the way, rob from the rich to give to the poor. This is an adventure that also shows what great friendships can do when set against extreme adversaries.

The reason I found this book interesting is because for all the Robin Hood based stories I've seen, I don't think I've actually read the original base stories such as these. Also, it was cool to read something and think, "Hey! I saw something like that in Hood by Lawhead. Or, "Look, that's someth...more

A delightful short-story collection recounting the origins and legendary escapades of England's most famous outlaw.

Aside from the anthropomorphic Disney version, and the occasional satire, this reader's Robin Hood experience was pretty limited. I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable this rea...more
