Guide to Tolkien's World is a scholarly, definitive, and enchantingly beautiful reference to all the living creatures -- both flora and fauna -- that inhabit J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth and Undying Lands. It is complete with descriptive text, both black and white and color illustrations, maps, a chronology, and a special index referring readers back to Tolkien's original works. All 129 races identified are clearly explained in terms of their physical appearance, language, behavior, and culture.
