Using threats to set up an ambush at Wickham, and bloodhounds to follow the outlaws desperate attempt to escape back into the depths of Sherwood, it soon evolves into a dramatic life-or-death chase through the forest.

Quotes

Herne the Hunter: Who is the greatest enemy? Always near to you, sometimes at your shoulder?
Robin of Loxley: I've known he was there.
Herne the Hunter: You must face him. Listen: each man travels along one path. At the end of it, if he has the courage, he will meet himself and find his power.
Robin of Loxley: Will you be there?
Herne the Hunter: No. But we cannot be parted. Another riddle for you.
