Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tolkien loved maps and geography played a great importance in his books. In the paperback revision of a hardcover that is out of print, cartographer Fonstad here details that aspect of these stories. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
Revision of Fonstad's 1981 version of the topography and synopsis of Tolkien's great epic. Her maps are quite faithful to the spirt of those drawn by the master himself. Changes reflect the recent releases in the History of Middle Earth series. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Crutial!

    Lothlorien, Mordor, Bree, Barrow-downs...It all gets quite confusing. I find it hard to read a book if you don't understand the location. This book shows everything. From the difficult to picture Endless Stair in the Mines of Moria, to the well-known Rivendell, this book has it. Essential for the Tolkien reader!
