She has never met her father-the outlaw folks call Robin Hood. But with her mother murdered and no one to care for her, thirteen-year-old Rowan has no choice but to track him down. Disguised as a boy, she picks up a band of followers, including Lionel, the gentle giant, and Ettarde, the runaway princess. Together, this motley crew will have to stick together if they are to survive the perils of Sherwood Forest. But when Robin Hood himself finds his life in danger, can Rowan prove she is worthy of carrying on the family legend?

This adventurous book by award-winning author Nancy Springer opens a whole new chapter in Robin Hood lore.
