Robin McKinley Synopsis: The Outlaws of Sherwood is a standalone novel by Robin McKinley. Robin Longbow is a sub-apprentice forester in Sherwood Forest, barely eking out a living-and barely able to control his temper when he is confronted by the taunts of the Chief Forester’s favorite. One careless shot, and he has killed the man. From then on, Robin is on the run – but he is not alone. Joined first by his friends Much and Marian, then by more and more people who despise the Norman lords who tax them blind, Robin builds a community of Saxon outlaws deep in Sherwood who risk the gallows and the sword for the sake of justice and freedom.
