QUERY: A Polish "Robin Hood"

Hello fellow HABSBURGERs,

A student of mine ran across a passage in an article she was reading on Polish history in the early modern period and came across a reference to a Polish "Robin Hood" figure.  She is interested in knowing if there is anything in English concerning Janosik (Janosak or Janasik).  She is also hoping against hope that their might be, somewhere in the world, a primary document on such a figure translated into English.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Take care,

John Ashbrook
