You have probably heard the theory that Robin Hood was never a real guy, just a fictional story. "Ghost of Sherwood" by Wilson Harp is a twist on that theory. What if all of the things that Robin Hood did really did happen, but Robin Hood was an imaginary scapegoat? A Hoax. Harp takes the story and does an excellent job of researching the 12th century England and spins it into a conspiracy theory that would stand the test of centuries.
I really liked this version. I have read the theory that Robin Hood was a woman and this book was much more believable. Robert, the sheriff, is the main character with Sir Guy being the bad guy. The book did seem a little long; I would probably have cut out a little bit. However, it was a fast read. I would recommend this to conspiracy theorist and history buffs. I give it a B. I received this book for free from www.librarything.com.
