“It’s a dangerous business, going out your front door.”In the age of men, one must face myriad challenges: epic quests, imminent danger, the evil gaze of Sauron… okay, so maybe not. But wouldn’t life’s day-to-day challenges be easier if one were to take a cue from the diminutive hobbit? With The Unofficial Hobbit Handbook as your guide, you’ll be ready to brave the difficulties, discomforts, and occasional orcs you may encounter. • Become acquainted and form fellowships with the peoples of Middle-earth: elves, dwarves, wizards, Ents, and more • Learn about the dangerous creatures that lurk in the lands beyond the Shire: orcs, wolves, and dragons • Use hobbit tactics of running away, hiding, and disappearing (with or without the use of magical rings) • Discover the proper etiquette for the delivery and solving or riddlesSo put another log on the fire, cut another slice of seed-cake (is it time for elevenses already?) and curl up with The Unofficial Hobbit Handbook. You’d never consider going on a nasty adventure, but it’s always best to be prepared, right?
From the editors of Popular Woodworking Magazine and American Woodworker magazine.
