R. Tolkien's inspiration and resources. It shows how The Land of the Rings is the result of an ancient story-telling tradition that dates back to the dawn of western culture and how, by drawing upon the world's primary myths and legends, Tolkien created his own mythology for the 20th century. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this is an extraordinary journey through the most magical and potent stories the people of our world have ever told one another.
