The Man Who Created the Lord of the RingsBook - 2001
This entertaining biography of the author takes readers back to his childhood in South Africa, his youth and adulthood in Great Britain, his experience in World War I, and his professorship at Oxford where Tolkien thought he had reached the pinnacle of his career. But it would be there that Tolkien would write "The Hobbit, " the story that led to his "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Photos.
