Young Robin Hood | George Manville Fenn

In the days of Young Robin Hood, a young boy named Robin is journeying through Sherwood Forest in a train of heavily-laden pack mules when suddenly the company is surrounded by rough men in green. Deserted in the commotion by an unfaithful servant, Robin finds himself alone in the forest. After a miserable night and an encounter with a bullying swineherd, Robin is found by Little John. A special friendship quickly develops between the boy and his huge companion.

Robin is treated kindly by Young Robin Hood, Maid Marian and the Merry Men, but he cannot help wondering how long he must wait for his father, the Sheriff of Nottingham, to come to take him home.
