Young Robert Fitzooth, after being orphaned and then betrayed by those left in charge of him, takes to the woods, and there gradually gathers followers and becomes the legendary Robin Hood, archer extraordinaire, gold-hearted bandit of the rich and selfish, champion of the poor, and leader of the scores of Merry Men of Sherwood Forest. Along the way he fights and disguises and tricks his way out of the good graces of the local law and into the hearts of the needy. - Drew Graham, Gooodreads

Louis Rhead was an English illustrator and author who is best known for Bold Robin Hood and His Outlaw Band. In this work, Rhead connected the events of the story with the customs and manners of the age in which it is supposed Robin Hood lived. The exact facts behind the legend are uncertain, but most people believe that Robin Hood must represent a real person because of the sheer volume of the texts. The earliest Robin Hood texts date to the fifteenth century. The legends recount that Robin Hood was an outlaw who stole from the rich to provide for the poor. It is generally felt that most of the characters, such as Friar Tuck, and Little John, were added by various authors to enhance the story.
