Book Description

Hollywood has not prepared you for the real Robin Hood, nor for the seismic shocks that shook England during his lifetime.

The more you become engrossed in his story, the more you learn about his determination, about his sense of what it truly means to be a free spirit.

His battle with corrupt authority in the shape of the sheriff of Nottingham is an inspiration for all of us.

You are about to be transported back to a time when the heart and soul of the country was being fought over - in a battle to the death.

You will come to know the story of many of the characters who make up Robin Hood's band of merrie men - Little John, Friar Tuck, Will Scarlett, Alan a Dale and Maid Marian each have a fascinating tale to tell, and in the journal you are able to read their stories in their own words.

The attempts of the Sheriff of Nottingham to trap and capture Robin make up the heart of the book. It is a deadly game with fatal consequences for any error.

Author David Stuart Ryan has visited many of the sites in England associated with Robin Hood and his story. As a history graduate from King's College London he has been able to use his training to probe beneath convention to establish what it was really like to be alive in a time of great turmoil.

In addition you get a vivid picture of medieval life, from the great cathedrals to the simple homes of the peasantry.

All the wonderful atmosphere of medieval England comes alive in the telling of Robin Hood's tale,

"The author is a natural writer able to transmit an almost lurid emotion and imagination."
London Weekend Television

=======================================================================

The arrival of the Kindle bookstore has opened up great possibilities
for the books which I thought would no longer be available, once the print runs had run out, as most have.

So I am busy putting them onto the bookstore, but the arrival of Kindle has also opened up a whole new avenue for showing you my poetry in its original
illustrated format - in glowing color too if you have the latest ereaders.

I would especially draw your attention to 'Postcards from around the Globe', 'New New World' about Australia and 'Home - and a journey to the USA'-
the illustrations really bring the poems to life in an unprecedented way
thanks to the wonders of the new computer age.

Poetry

The Sphere of the Moon Goddess
==============================

A reproduction of the notebook of poetry and illustrations
created on a year-long visit overland to India, Pakistan, Nepal, Kathmandu, Bihar, Kashmir, Varanasi, Mumbai and Goa.
There are over 120 original illustrations.

The Conjunction of the Sun and Moon
======================================

This is a book that could only really exist in the digital age. With over 150 sumptuous color illustrations to go with the 150 poems, you are plunged into a highly sensual world. It is an art book as much as a poetry book, each
color illustration has been faithfully reproduced from the original.

It is an exploration of the nature of the attraction between man and woman. Over the course of a year you will go on a journey that is curiously in sync with the seasons of the natural world.

Along the way encounters, hints, messages, hopes, disasters, premonitions,
intense coming togethers and equally intense partings figure in this no holds barred portrayal of love and loss, attraction and repulsion.

It is a description of the human condition that takes you to strange places indeed as you enter the second of The Seven Worlds.

Postcards from around the Globe
===============================

Set out on a journey overland to Asia - including India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong.

The illustrations take you there, richly sensuous and mystically allusive in turns, you can see for yourself what the poems are talking about. 100 original full color illustrations illuminate the path and the way in the
third of the Seven Worlds.

New New World
=============
-the land of Australia and the islands of Fiji


David Stuart Ryan draws on his Australian heritage (his mother, grandmother
and great grandmother were all Australian) to bring you the strange seductive atmosphere of the lucky country into a spellbinding combination of vivid
pictures and highly philosophical poetry about what it means to be in this
most ancient of lands.

This exploration is followed by a visit to the Fiji islands which begins to place Australia where it really is, the glorious South Pacific.

Home - and a journey to the USA
=================================
How the UK looks after some years away, the old Roman town begins to emerge in poetry that takes a fresh look at the English experience, before a journey to the USA switches the perspective again and we are off on another exploration
of the body and spirit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well done 25 Mar. 2014
By joboy
Format:Kindle Edition
Having only ever read the children's story versions of Robin Hood this came as an eye opener. This characterization as Robyn Hood was fairly well written and the story was split up nicely into manageable chunks written from various character's standpoints. The timing of the battle at Sluy and the numbers involved seemed over-the-top it was a sea battle but Robyn seems to fight it on land. The Great Pestilence was well described if a little gruesome.

3.0 out of 5 stars ANew take..... 8 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
But ultimately you are left wondering why the sift in time? Was it solely to underline the author's knowledge of the end of the Plantagenet period and allow him to use the Black Death to wind everything up?

Really enjoyed this slant on the Robin Hood legend, a more fleshed out story than some others I have read about about the man. Top story.

5.0 out of 5 stars an absolute jewel of a book 13 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow. The history was accurate, exciting and vivid while the narrative was eloquent, poetic, romantically enticing and even at times, very profound. What a find in Kindle! If you like Game of Thrones, here is the real deal. I'm still pondering many of the historically profound themes such as climate change, the politics of leadership, the bubanic plague and even G~d. A perfect read on an amazing character during a powerful time in Britian's history.
