Publisher's Summary

Who was Robin Hood? Throughout history the figures of the hooded man of Sherwood Forest and his band of outlaws have transfixed readers, listeners, and viewers; but where does the myth come from?
The story appeared out of the legend of the Green man, but found its location during the reign of Richard I, the Lionheart, who was away from England fighting in the crusades. In his absence, his brother John laid waste to the country.
But does this tell the full story? Was Robin a bandit prince ahead of a troop of brigands? Who was the Sherriff and was he in fact the legitimate law in the land fighting vigilantes?

worst audio book performance ever

Some random woman goes "Oh, I am not an actress, but I can read out your audio book " and this is the end result.
I am sure the book has excellent content, but the audio performance is woeful and deeply irritating. She gabbles away. Can't act. Doesn't try. Its a complete farce.
