Robin Hood
By Sharon Fabian

1     Robin Hood was an outlaw, but he was also a hero. He broke the laws of the forest, hunting deer where only the king was allowed to hunt, but to the everyday people, he was a hero.
2     He is still a hero today to many people. Robin Hood stories are well-known, and the character of Robin Hood, dressed in forest green and carrying a bow and arrow, is a familiar one. Although there is no evidence that Robin Hood ever existed, he has lived through the ages as a folk hero.
3     Robin Hood had the qualities that many people admire. He was good-hearted and courteous to everyday people. He looked out for his friends and those in need. He loved nature, and he also enjoyed a good time. He is probably best known by the age-old description - "He stole from the rich, and he gave to the poor."
