(From the publisher):
In the dark time, with Saxon freedom crushed beneath the iron fist of King William the Conqueror, the cry for a champion resounds throughout the land - and Edward Aelredson, Thane of Denby, answers the call. Forced from his home by the brutal Norman invaders, young Edward takes refuge in the ancient forest Sherwood - there to foment rebellion amid its green and silent bowers. With sword and bow, with the aid of stalwart compatriots, he will bedevil the minions of the usurper king - besting their numbers with courage, ruthless cunning and extraordinary skill. And for the love of his faithful wife Marian, he will risk death at the hands of Ralf Fitz-Gerald, the dangerous and enigmatic Sheriff of Nottingham - giving rise to heroic tales and glorious songs of the outlaw called "Robin Hood."
