The Lord of the Rings was first read aloud to me by my brother when i was 11. We are Ranchers and many times during that summer i felt as though was in middle earth instead of in the Rocky Mountains. i loved the books and have read them many times since that blissful summer.
Favorite Tolkien character:
Gandalf. He never gives up. He maintains an atmosphere of hope and courage even in the darkest of times.
