A precious new perspective
The world J.R.R. Tolkien created is one of the most beloved in all of literature, and continues to capture imaginations around the world. But one facet of Tolkien and his Middle Earth has been overlooked: science. This great writer and inventor of language was also a scientific autodidact with an innate interest in botany, paleontology, geology, archeology, and chemistry.
Within this gorgeously illustrated edition, a range of scientists—from astrophysicists to physicians, botanists to volcanologists—explore Tolkien’s novels, poems, and letters to reveal their fascinating scientific roots. This transportive work will delight both Tolkien fans and science lovers. It will also inspire readers to view Middle Earth with fresh eyes.
