The Patriot Resource - The Lord of the Rings

Three rings for the Elven-kings under the sky;
   Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone;
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die;
   One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie;
   One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
   One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them;
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie;

5/6/07 - The Children of Hurin, begun in 1918, was one of three 'Great Tales' J.R.R. Tolkien worked on throughout his life. Though familiar to many fans from extracts and references within other Tolkien books, it has long been assumed that the story would forever remain an unfinished tale. Now reconstructed by Christopher Tolkien, who edited together the complete work from his father's many drafts. Christopher has also created a detailed new map for this book. In addition, it includes a jacket and color paintings by illustrator Alan Lee.
