The first volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure The Lord of the Rings. In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, (as told in The Hobbit). The Ring eventually passes to Bilbo's young nephew, Frodo Baggins. The fearsome Ringwraiths were searching for the Ring. Frodo Baggins knew they were seeking him and the Ring he bore, the Ring of Power that would enable evil Sauron to destroy all that was good in Middle-earth. Now it was up to Frodo and his faithful friend, Sam. With a small band of companions to carry the Ring to the one place it could be destroyed, Mount Doom, in the very center of Suaron's dark kingdom.

Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.
