The Adventures of Robin Hood (Puffin Classics)by Roger Lancelyn Green
Synopses & Reviews
Robin Longbow is a sub-apprentice forester in Sherwood Forest, barely eking out a living-and barely able to control his temper when he is confronted by the taunts of the Chief Forester's favorite. One careless shot, and he has killed the man. From then on, Robin is on the run-but he is not alone. Joined first by his friends Much and Marian, then by more and more people who despise the Norman lords who tax them blind, Robin builds a community of Saxon outlaws deep in Sherwood who risk the gallows and the sword for the sake of justice and freedom.
"In the tradition of T. H. White's reincarnation of King Arthur, a novel that brings Robin Hood . . . delightfully to life!" (Kirkus Reviews)
Robin Hood defies authority as he steals from the rich and gives to the poor, in this classic tale of adventure.
The great Norse sagas, full of adventures, magic, and heroic deeds--Yggdrasill the World Tree, Odin's wanderings, Thor's hammer, the death of Baldur, Freya the bride, the vision of Ragnarok--these are tales told since time immemorial. Peopled with Frost Giants and Valkyries, Norns and all the gods of Asgard, Myths of the Norsemen brings to life the harsh but exciting world of the old Norsemen.
Robin Hood, champion of the poor and opponent of the Sheriff of Nottingham, takes refuge in the Sherwood Forest and outwits his enemies with daring and panache.
