This biography in precise and accurate in every history happened in England for both of them.

5-0 out of 5 stars An exciting, fun read
Gramercy!This is one of the best books I have read in quite some time. From the first page, the slightly archaic English prose lends an air of authenticity to the book (or at least makes it feel a little more old-fashioned). Nathless, I never had any difficulty keeping up with Robin's many adventures--and there are many of them in this book! For the most part, each short chapter contains an isolated episode, making this a great book to read anytime, anywhere.Occasionally, a lenghty episode may be split among two or three chapters. The Robin Hood of this book is a wonderfully believable character--well skilled at archery, but less so at some other activities. In sooth, while he seems to have good intentions, he can come off a bit arrogant at times.

From Robin's bold meeting with Little John on a narrow foot bridge to his humorous first encounter with Friar Tuck from the opposite bank of a stream, we learn how many members of Robin's Merry Men came to join the band. We see how Robin's men fall in and out of favor with authority, and we watch his growing interest in the lovely Maid Marian. Packed full with knights, castles, bows and arrows, daring rescues, odds bodikins, and a host of unforgettable characters clad in Lincoln Green, this book provides a much needed escape from the hectic world of today to the English countryside of eight centuries ago. Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Version of this classic
This is a delightful version of the classic Robin Hood. I especially love the illustrations by Greg Hildebrandt, and the timelessness of this leather bound edition. We see Robin hood as handsome and brave. The romance betweenhim and Maid Marian is bitter-sweet. The book is divided in chapters, yetcan be enjoyed by children and adults alike without being boring. Ipersonally keep it on my bookshelf, away from little hands.

5-0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood and His Merry Outlaws
McSpadden stays true to the Robin Hood legend and in my opinion this is the best portrayel of Robin Hood I have read and I recently read five other book about Robin Hood and find this one the best. If you are lookingto buy Robin Hood then get this one you wont regret it, trust me on thisone. I like how Robin Hood is the best archer in Sherwood bet is notas good in other forms of combat so it makes him seem more human, but notordinary like many other book about him. ... Read more
