‘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.

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.
