by Robin McKinley
From the back:
"WANTED FOR TREASON: ROBIN OF SHERWOOD
Robin McKinley, Newberry Award winning author of The Hero and the Crown, brings to life the classic tale of Robin Hood and reveals the legendary characters as they must have been: flesh and blood outlaws who risked the gallows and the sword for the sake of justice ... let the rich and wicked beware!"
I can't decide whether this novel falls under the category of historical fiction or fantasy. In either case, this is a wonderful book which gives you a different perspective on all the old stories you may have heard and does the characters more justice than all cartoons and movies you may have seen.
