The Children of Húrin
by J. R. R. Tolkien and Christopher Tolkien and Alan Lee




Overview -
Long before the One Ring was forged in the fires of Mount Doom, one man--H rin--dared to defy Morgoth, the first and greatest of the dark lords to plague Middle-earth. Thus did he and his children, T rin and Ni nor, earn the enmity of a merciless foe that would shape the destiny of all the ages to come.

Only J.R.R. Tolkien, the undisputed master of the fantastic, could have conceived this magical tale of Elves and Men united against a brutal foe. And only Christopher Tolkien, the master's son and literary heir, could have fit the pieces of his father's unfinished work together with such deep understanding and consummate artistry. With an introduction and appendiCes by Christopher Tolkien, who has also contributed maps and genealogy tables, and eight stunning paintings and twenty-five pencil drawings by Oscar-winning artist Alan Lee, The Children of H rin at last takes its proper place as the very cornerstone of J.R.R. Tolkien's immortal achievement.
