Robin's Country

by Monica Furlong

Dummy, a badly treated farm-boy, decides to run away from Master and Mistress one night after a cruel beating. He becomes ill and falls into Robin's Country in Sherwood Forest. After being nursed back to health, Marian is somewhat cold to him, believing him to be a spy. So neither Marian nor Dummy are very pleased when they learn that she is to give him lessons in archery. "Don't do it for yourself, do it for the sake of doing it," she scolds him. In Robin's Country, Dummy tries to learn who he is, and where he came from before he landed with Master. He travels with Robin to different places to help make justice, and in the end, Robin's Country and Prince John's army battle in Sherwood Forest.
