Book Excerpt: 
. . .ing had been made in the centre of it, and huge wooden stands had been built about this circle. They were covered finely with cloth of red and gold; and many flags and banners were flying above the tops and about the stands.

The blare and discord of trumpets rang out over the noise of the people. A great clamor of voices betokened the arrival of some great man at the front of the chief stand.

"The Sheriff has arrived," cried Stuteley, who knew the ways at these affairs. "Hear how the people do cheer him! For sure he must be a man well liked——"

"These fellows will applaud anyone who has power and office," said Warrenton, scornfully. "Master Monceux is not beloved of them, for all that. But hasten, or we shall be shut out. Already they are closing the gates."

The clouds were heavy and grey, and a few large drops of rain began to patter down.

"Look to our bows, Warrenton," cried Robin, in alarm.

Stephen King once claimed that if you had to look up the word for your writing, it was the wrong word. I am paraphrasing quite a bit with that, but I think I've communicated the gist of his words well enough. The book starts slowly and eventually does grip you in some places, but the author's use...more

I grew up with all the knowledge of Robin Hood, as my Uncle is a huge Robin Hood afficianado... I knew who all the Merry Men were, saw all the films, he even had a little old play set of Robin Hood (we girl cousins fought over who got to be Maid Marion), and I don't know how many times I have see...more

I just finished this book for the first time since I was a child. I didn't remember much of it from then and most of what I thought I knew of the book is based on movies I've seen since.

The book is VERY different than the currently popular view of Robin Hood. For one thing, while he does rob only...more

Obviously, the story here is familiar. This is not a re-imagining of Robin Hood, it's a simple re-telling, a collection of many of the original tales in a single place.

The first thing any reader will notice is the style. This book was written in the early 20th century, but it written in a deliber...more

Love the flow of this language - a bit of the old and still understandable. Fits the day of Robin Hood, and the adventures are great to read. Fun!

Must read for the fan of Robin Hood.

I found the first 100 pages or so very dull - travels through the forest and plots and intrigue but almost no description so that I don't even know what Robin looks like.

After a bit, when Robin is firmly established in the forest, the story picks up and there is enough suspense to keep it mildly...more

An 1902 novel written like a 12th-century piece of history. This book was amazing, but like so many others was very difficult to read. If you are looking for a challenge that involves folklore, legend, heroism and action, then this is for you. While not the original Robin Hood text, this is a ver...more

Having only ever known the legends of Robin Hood from movies (i.e. mostly the Disney animation, and no, Dake, I have never seen the Kevin Costner one, but have sure heard that putrid Bryan Adams song more than enough times in my life), I have really never known much of the legends save what every...more

It was nice to read an early tale of Robin Hood. The remakes I'm familiar with all have much of the same story and characters so it wasn't a strange read for me but it wasn't a boring one, either. The language is archaic so it takes a bit of time to get used to it, and definitely a lot more conce...more
