"The Adventures of Robin Hood" by Howard Pyle, full of action-packed adventure, tells the story of an outlaw named Robin Hood who lived in Sherwood Forest. In this timeless classic, Robin Hood and his "Merry Men" stole from the rich to help the poor. Unfortunately for them, the sheriff of Nottingham didn't appreciate their good will. Howard Pyle was the first modern writer to collect all the Robin Hood ballads that had come down from the medieval era and structure them as stories. Every version of Robin Hood since Pyle's time has drawn on this book as a major source. As a result, reading Pyle's "The Adventures of Robin Hood" is the best way to understand why the minor characters in Kevin Costner's "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves" are named things like "Will Scarlet" or "Much the Miller's Son." Because Howard Pyle is known better as an illustrator than a writer, the original illustrations by Pyle are included in this book. Though black and white, Pyle's illustrations are immensely rich and detailed, and as full of period accuracy and background research as his writing. Reading Pyle's book without his illustrations is like watching an Oscar-winning film with the screen blacked out-and this version does include facsimile's of Pyle's original drawings which illustrate the story so well.
