J.R.R Tolkein's Lord of the Rings
by Roberto H. Marquez

The Lord of the Rings is an awesome group of books that tells a tale of love, war and triumph. It follows the path the One Ring took from the time it left its makers hand, all the way till it returns to the mountain of its forging to be destroyed.

The Ring falls into the hands of Gollum, when Sauron, the maker of the ring, loses his hand in a duel. Gollum, an ancestor to Hobbits, remained with the ring in the depths of a goblin-infested mountain for a very long time. That is until Bilbo Baggins the Hobbit, while separated from his companions of Dwarves and the wizard Gandalf the Grey, comes across Gollum�s hiding place for the Ring. From Bilbo the Ring is then passed on to Frodo, an adopted nephew of Bilbo�s. Frodo is then asked to commit to a destiny that will forever change Middle Earth; to destroy the source of power that forever keeps life young. Accompanied by eight others, Frodo and the Ring travel many leagues and discover worlds of change and adventure on their road to the very heart of the Evil One�s land to destroy the Ring.

The Lord of the Rings is a perfect example of how even small people can make a difference when they do their best. The rest of this page is designated to providing pictures and links to more Tolkein related sites.

The next best thing to actually reading the books is finding more information on Middle Earth, the different timelines/geneologies presented, and individual characters' backrounds.  So the following are links to informative and resourceful sites that are about Tolkein's Lord of the Rings.
