It's time for a bit more BS! August 2

Here's a BS of Boromir's understanding of Fangorn and Rohan... for a moment of Tolkien-zen.

From Farewell to Lórien: The Fellowship of the Ring


... "'...Indeed we have heard of Fangorn in Minas Tirith,' said Boromir. 'But what I have heard seems to me... ...old wives' tales, such as we tell to our children. All that lies north of Rohan is now to us so far away that fancy can wander freely there. Of old Fangorn lay upon the borders of our realm; but it is now many lives of men since any of us visited it, to prove or disprove the legends that have come down from distant years.
... 'I have myself been... ...in Rohan, but I have never crossed it northwards. When I was sent out as a messenger, I passed through the Gap... ...and crossed the Isen and the Greyflood into Northerland. A long and wearisome journey. Four hundred leagues I reckoned... ...it took me many months; for I lost my horse at Tharbad, at the fording of the Greyflood. After that journey, and the road I have trodden with this Company, I do not much doubt that I shall find a way through Rohan, and Fangorn too, if need be.'
... 'Then I need say no more,' said Celeborn. 'But do not despise the lore that has come down from distant years; for oft is may chance that old wives keep in memory word of things that once were needful for the wise to know.'"
