On the back of the book:


Journeys of Frodo is an Atlas of fifty-one maps charting the epic jourey that Frodo and his companions undertake in J.R.R. Tolkien's great work of imaginative fiction, The Lord of the Rings.

The maps are drawn in two colours throughout and clearly show Frodo's route (together with the paths taken by other principal characters) and provide enough detail to help the reader to envisage the country through which the narrative moves. The maps are based on clear and detailed descriptions given in the text and on the original maps that appeared with the books. Barbara Strachey has also studied Tolkien's own paintings and drawings of the landscape and features of Middle-earth. Each map has extensive notes to explain special points and to give references for the information used.

Barbara Strachey is not a cartographer or a professional artist. She has known and loved the books since they first appeared and has longwanted fuller and more detailed maps to go with them. Finally she decided to create them herself and her efforts will give the reader of The Lord of the Rings a new and more vivid idea of Middle-earth.
