4.0 out of 5 stars ATLAS OF MIDDLE EARTH 14 May 2003
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is an atlas of 51 maps covering Frodo and friends’ journey to Mordor and back and serves as an ideal geographical companion to The Lord Of The Rings. The maps are drawn in red and black at various scales, based on Tolkien’s descriptions and measurements and on he original maps. On the facing page each map has extensive notes to explain special points and to provide references for the information that was used. The places where the travellers slept are also marked and the day of each day’s journey provided, according to the Hobbit calendar. In addition, symbols showing the phases of the moon are provided. The frontispiece has a map of a part of north-west Middle Earth with a guide to the map symbols which are roads, path, causeway, routes off roads, routes on roads, routes on rivers, fortified hedges, hedges, marshes, beacons, woods, pine forests, buildings and contours. Isengard an the city of Minas Tirith with its seven walls are clearly drawn and the last map is of the Shire and the Grey Havens. Using this book while reading o re-reading The Lord Of The Rings will give the reader a more vivid idea of Middle Earth. I recommend this atlas to all Tolkien completists and to those who would like to know more of the epic journey while reading his masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars engaging and vivid 13 Feb 2010
By Patrick J. Cudmore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Drawing upon Professor Tolkien's own well defined descriptions and maps Barbara Strachey has created a fine
volume of cartographic drawings of the routes taken by Frodo Baggins and the other members of the fellowship.
The maps are highly consistent and creative regarding Middle-earth topography and environmental realties.
Moon phases,rest stops,camping sites and important occurrences within the journey are all marked and noted
for a complete picture of the path's taken to destroy the ring of power and the struggle to save
Middle-earth.
This work contains fifty-one maps with detailed but brief(a usual page long) descriptions of the
country traversed , corresponding dates and text from novel for background and
footnoted for reference. This an impressive book allowing the reader to fully
inhabit and trace the epic journey of the company of nine in a relatively compact
collection to compliment Tolkien's own volumes. Though the author concentrates her
work depicted in THE LORD OF THE RINGS she has consulted and referenced for clarity
sake THE HOBBIT,UNFINISHED TALES and other Middle -Earth related material to
ensure a fuller account of said maps and drawings. Undoubtedly comparison's can
be made with another volume of cartographic pieces depicting J.R.R Tolkien's
creation;The Atlas of Middle- earth by Karen Wynn Fonstad, however this much larger
book covers a broader spectrum within Tolkien's sub -created world through
the ages and changes in the spheres. Ms Fonstad is a professional cartographer and her volume
shows it , Ms.Strachey is not a professional in the that field but her work while not as refined
a other is in my opinion can stand alongside the larger especially in regards to what it
provides in detail and execution. THE JOURNEYS OF FRODO is an engaging and vivid book.

I chose this product because my ex-boyfriend is really into LOTR, but already has most of the stuff. So, this was quite the original birthday present, and he really liked it.
