The illustrations are as shown in the original edition. This edition has deckled fore edges ; Colour Illustrations; 8.80 X 7.20 X 1.70 inches; 362 pages; A modern reprint of the classic novel, beautiful copies of the N. C. Wyeth. "Recounts the life and adventures of Robin Hood, who, with his band of followers, lived as an outlaw in Sherwood Forest dedicated to fight against tyranny. This is Paul Creswick's able retelling of the Robin Hood myth. The Robin Hood narrative first surfaced as a short mention in Piers Plowman, and accreted details through folk-tales, ballad, literature, and of course, cinema. Like other English literary productions such as King Arthur or Sherlock Holmes, the fact that Robin Hood is a fiction is almost irrelevant; people want to believe that he was an actual historical personage. Creswick's version of this tale brings it to life. The whole story of Robin Hood's life, not just his adventures in the woods. If you think it's going slowly in the beginning, just wait. Creswick creates a clear picture and includes all the major events of Robin Hoods life."
