Karen Wynn Fonstad's THE ATLAS OF MIDDLE-EARTH is an essential volume that will enchant all Tolkien fans. Here is the definitive guide to the geography of Middle-earth, from its founding in the Elder Days through the Third Age, including the journeys of Bilbo, Frodo, and the Fellowship of the Ring. Authentic and updated -- nearly one third of the maps are new, and the text is fully revised -- the atlas illuminates the enchanted world created in THE SILMARILLION, THE HOBBIT, and THE LORD OF THE RINGS.

Hundreds of two-color maps and diagrams survey the journeys of the principal characters day by day -- including all the battles and key locations of the First, Second, and Third Ages. Plans and descriptions of castles, buildings, and distinctive landforms are given, along with thematic maps describing the climate, vegetation, languages, and population distribution of Middle-earth throughout its history. An extensive appendix and an index help readers correlate the maps with Tolkien's novels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true companion for your Tolkien reading This is a must-have book for any Tolkien reader. It makes so much easier to understand the geography and the detailed physical environment of the Middle Earth! This helped me to materialize Minas Tirith in my mind while I missed pictures from the book in this passage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great guide for reading Tolkien's books A great summary of Tolkien's top 3 books: The Silmarillion, The Lord of the Rings, and The Hobbit. Placing the events of those tales in a geographical context really helps to bring the stories and events alive. A much better value than The Maps Of Tolkien's Middle-earth by Silbey & Howe.
