Prolific English writer George P.R. James presents this work of historical fiction in three volumes. The long, flowing prose is atypical of any work in the Robin Hood tome, and with the addition of never-before-seen characters and lengthy dialogues, it is nearly unrecognizable. By the author's own account, he has made a bold change in the folklore setting the story during the reign of Henry III instead of Richard I. He claims to have made great pains to remain historically accurate in this vein. To say that Forest Days is simply another telling of Robin Hood is more than inaccurate. It is a work of its own, a Romantic Period piece that does not fit neatly into any category, but more than that, it's a good read.
