Product Description

Review

‘A handy volume… a good guide to Middle-earth for The Lord of the Rings readers… a painstaking and successful achievement.’
Amon Hen, The Bulletin of the Tolkien Society

From the Back Cover

' Journeys of Frodo ' is an Atlas of 51 maps charting the epic journey that Frodo and his companions undertake in J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic work, 'The Lord of the Rings'.

Based on clear and detailed descriptions given in the text and on the original maps that appear in 'The Lord of the Rings', as well as Tolkien’s own paintings and drawings of the landscape and features of Middle-earth, this book clearly shows Frodo’s route, together with the paths taken by other principal characters. The maps provide enough detail to help the reader envisage the country through which the narrative moves, and each one also has extensive notes about the journey.

Having loved the volumes of 'The Lord of the Rings' since they first appeared, Barbara Strachey long wanted fuller and more detailed maps to go with them. Though not a professional cartographer or artist, she finaly decided to create them herself. For nearly 20 years her efforts have provided readers of ' The Lord of the Rings ' with a new and more vivid idea of Middle-earth, and her book remains an essential companion to Tolkien’s great masterpiece.

“A handy volume…a good guide to Middle-earth for 'The Lord of the Rings' readers…a painstaking and successful achievement.”
AMON HEN, The Bulletin of the Tolkien Society.

Format: Paperback
While being a great companion to LOTR it provides little else. It is perfect for looking at while re-reading LOTR and helps you to visualise the landscape far better. However it is nowhere near as good as the atlas of middle-earth (which is brilliant) for general maps. Overall, OK nothing special, but worth having if like me you enjoy reading LOTR over and over.

Barbara Strachey's careful attention to detail and her fine eye for artistic enhancement provide the reader with a visual feast. Ms. Strachey painstakingly lays out every step of the journey from Bag End to Mount Doom with some of the most beautifully drawn Middle Earth maps available. This book is a necessary addition to any Tolkien collection.

Ever wondered what Frodo&co.'s journey _exactly_ looked like? Ever wanted a bit more detailed maps of it? Well, here you are.
It is not as detailed (and consequently not as overwhelming) as Karen Wynn Fonstad's Atlas of Middle Earth; it gives you exactly what it promises: the route of the Ring's journey from Bag End to Mount Doom. (Aragorn&co.'s detour to Rohan is also included, of course).
The maps are in black and red (like Christpher Tolkien's originals), and are based on those original maps AND the descriptions in the book. As a result, sometimes they differ a bit - Strachey always gives explanations and quotes for that.
I found it very helpful as an accompaniment to LOTR, as it helps me to follow the journey visually as well. It gives a sense of how big distances are.
Highly recommended to any LOTR enthusiast.
