In the days of King Richard the Lionheart, a young forester named Robin set out one morning for the Nottingham Fair. But he never arrived. By the end of the day a man lay dead in the King's Forest, and Robin was an outlaw with a price on his head.
There have been many tales and ballards about the man we know as Robin Hood, and the lady Marian, Little John, Will Scarlet and the rest. But Newbery medalist Robin McKinley brings her unique gifts of storytelling to the familiar legends, and creates an original and compelling novel.

“Takes us back to those wonderful first meetings between Robin Hood and his followers. So strong is the power of this story that it catches us all over again...[McKinley] richly restores the textures that time has worn to bare narrative threads.” –The New York Times
“In the tradition of T.H. White’s reincarnation of King Arthur, a novel that brings Robin Hood...delightfully to life!” –Kirkus Reviews
“McKinley’s taken the familiar high adventures and retold them with her unique talent...There’s plenty of action, but in this retelling, as in her first brilliant book Beauty, McKinley makes what was familiar and comfortable new and shining...[A] glorious romance.” –St. Petersburg Times
“Praiseworthy.” –The Washington Post
“A great read.” –Chicago Tribune
“Enriched with entrancing details of life in the forest, graced with a neat pair of satisfying love stories, and culminating in a couple of rousing battles, McKinley’s Robin should be delighting readers for years to come.” –Kirkus Reviews
