Young Will Shackley is the son of a lord, and though at just thirteen he's led a charmed, protected life, he is the heir to Shackley House while his father is away on the Third Crusade with King Richard the Lionheart.
With King Richard's absence, the winds of treason are blowing across England, and soon Shackley House becomes caught up in a dangerous power struggle that drives Will out of the only home he's ever known. Alone, he flees into the dangerous Sherwood Forest, where he joins an elusive gang of bandits readers will surely recognize.
This is the story of the rise of Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men—all because of one brave 13-year-old boy.
