Description: First published in 1934, this rousing tale of medieval England was Geoffrey Trease's first published work. Years later, in 1966, he slightly revised the book and in his note to that edition - reprinted six times recalled its extraordinary pull. Boys and girls wrote to me from all over the world. It was even turned into Icelandic. A friend told me how, when fighting in the Spanish Civil War, he found a German translation of it in Barcelona which had been published in Russia. 'The tale of young Dickon, the clash between rich and poor, and above all, the story of the great leader, Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest presented as the author felt he might have been, can now be re-discovered by a new generation of younger readers.
