Ian Brodie is a former Air Force pilot who has become a renowned expert on this native New Zealand. His interest in photography and in The Lord of the Rings led him to write and compile this guide, which was then authorised and embraced by Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema. He is now the official Middle-earth spokesperson for Air New Zealand, the official airline of the movies, and he even has a small walk-on part in The Return of the King.Review:
"With its maps, directions, visitor information and exclusive stills of the locatuibs as they apper in reality, this was obviously a labour of love for the author, who has bent over backwards to make this the definitive Rings guide...it's easy to se why this was voted New Zealand Book of the Year!" - Film Review
