"A PURE PLEASURE"
A timeless hero and a giver to the people, the beloved character of Robin Hood comes alive in the novel by Howard Pyle. Published in 1883, the book follows the charismatic English outlaw on his adventures with his Merry Men as they navigate the forest as well as other important locations in Nottingham. Throughout each section of the book, Robin Hood must evade getting caught by police and other authority figures, for he has been classified a criminal by the people in power.
The legend of Robin Hood was based on the career of a real outlaw who lived in the forests near Nottingham, England, in the last half of the 12th century. His character has become world famous and is the subject of hundreds of plays, novels, stories, and films.

The shadowy figure of Robin Hood has been central to English folklore for centuries. Through time he has become the legendary English hero - living a life of splendid ease in the green wood, stealing from the rich to give to the poor, and vanquishing injustice in the shape of Prince John and the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. And this is how we present him in a collection of the best known stories.
