About this item

J.R.R. Tolkien's THE CHILDREN OF HURIN was begun in 1918, and has since been pieced together from his estate by his son, Christopher. The book has been greatly anticipated by Tolkien's legions of fans: the LORD OF THE RINGS crowd is sure to rejoice over its final release. While HURIN gives an insightful and fascinating look at the beginnings of Middle Earth, the story will likely entertain even those who are new to the world of hobbits.
The Children of Húrin is the first complete book by J.R.R.Tolkien since the 1977 publication of The Silmarillion. Six thousand years before the One Ring is destroyed, Middle-earth lies under the shadow of the Dark Lord Morgoth. The greatest warriors among elves and men have perished, and all is in darkness and despair. But a deadly new leader rises, Túrin, son of Húrin, and with his grim band of outlaws begins to turn the tide in the war for Middle-earth -- awaiting the day he confronts his destiny and the deadly curse laid upon him.

The paperback edition of The Children of Húrin includes eight color paintings by Alan Lee and a black-and-white map.
