From the back cover: Courage, cunning, leadership... and unparalleled skill with a bow!
With King Richard held hostage across the sea, his brother, Prince John, has set about a plan to increase his riches and make his temporary rise to the crown... permanent. Under John's rule, local authorities like the Sheriff of Nottingham and Sir Guy of Gisbourne oversee a scheme that is taxing the people beyond their tolerance.
Beset by tragedy, young Robin of Locksley flees into Sherwood Forest and emerges as Robin Hood, leader of the Merry Men - a band of outlaws who fight the Sheriff's policies by robbing his money wagons and distributing the proceeds to their poor countrymen.
Robin Hood, along with Maid Marion, Little John, Friar Tuck, and others, battles to outwit Prince John, the Sheriff, and Sir Guy, and restore the balance of power between the sovereign and his subjects.
