Description
Beautifully illustrated with dozens of original ink drawings and watercolors by the author, typical of a naturalist's guide, Dinah Hazell's catalog of the flowers, herbs, and trees of the Shire and other lands of Middle-earth connects readers visually to the complete world that J.R.R. Tolkien depicted. "Rather than inventing an alien world into which human and familiar characters are introduced, as in science fiction, Tolkien created a natural environment that is also home to 'supernatural' beings and elements, as in medieval works like Beowulf," Hazell writes. In regional chapters she provides the plants' descriptions, uses, history, and lore, which frequently lead to their thematic and interpretive implications.
