Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The tone is heroic, both the heroes and the villains greater than life-size.” — New York Times Book Review

Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth concentrates on the lands of Middle-earth and comprises Gandalf’s lively account of how he came to send the Dwarves to the celebrated party at Bag-End, the story of the emergence of the sea god Ulmo before the eyes of Tuor on the coast of Beleriand, and an exact description of the military organization of the Riders of Rohan and the journey of the Black Riders during the hunt for the Ring. It also contains the only surviving story about the long ages of Númenor before its downfall, and all that is known about the Five Wizards sent to Middle-earth as emissaries of the Valar, about the Seeing Stones known as palantíri, and about the legend of Amroth.

Edited and with an introduction, commentary, index, and maps by Christopher Tolkien.

“An indispensable volume illuminating many unknown stories and details of Middle-earth unavailable elsewhere.” — Douglas A. Anderson, author of The Annotated Hobbit
