Robyn Hode is the first in a series of short novellas that attempts to explore the history behind the legend and provide an alternative version of the familiar tale.Instead of Nottinghamshire and Sherwood Forest, the action takes place in the West Riding of Yorkshire. In place of the reigns of Richard the Lionheart and King John, the tale begins in the year 1224, during the reign of the young Henry III. Robins enemy is not the Sheriff of Nottingham, but the High Sheriff of Yorkshire.Part One tells the story of Robert Hode, a yeoman farmer and petty thief, forced to flee into the forest after defending his home and family against the malice of Sir Gui de Gisburne.

Hunted like an animal through the woods, he falls into the company of Hobbe of Wetherby, a notorious murderer and the most wanted felon in the kingdom. Robert must rely on his all his courage and skill to survive, and avoid ending as crowbait on the gallows.Mingling fact with fiction, and drawing heavily on surviving contemporary records, Robyn Hode is a tough and unsqueamish tale and like no other version of the legend...
