Thread Name: Robin Hood in the Crusades?
Subject: RE: Robin Hood in the Crusades?
I too, as a child, had what I believe was the same novel, I remember it was published by Nelsons, had a dark blue leathergrain cover. I remember the novel laid a good deal of emphasis on Robin's piety, as well as his martial prowess.

I find the idea of him wearing a red-dyed outfit somewhat bizarre. Presumably green would have been a more effective camouflage in the forest, shirley ?
