The standard harcover edition of the concluding volume of The Lord of the Rings includes a large format fold-out map and extensive appendices. As the Shadow of Mordor grows across the land, the Companions of the Ring have become involved in separate adventures.

Merry and Pippin, captured by Orcs, escape into Fangorn Forest and there encounter the Ents. Gandalf has miraculously returned and defeated the evil wizard, Saruman.

From the Inside Flap:

THE GREATEST FANTASY EPIC OF OUR TIME
While the evil might of the Dark Lord Sauron swarmed out to conquer all Middle-earth, Frodo and Sam struggled deep into Mordor, seat of Sauron's power. To defeat the Dark Lord, the accursed Ring of Power had to be destroyed in the fires of Mount Doom. But the way was impossibly hard, and Frodo was weakening. Weighed down by the compulsion of the Ring he began finally to despair.
The awesome conclusion of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings, beloved by millions of readers around the world.

From the Back Cover:

This is the third part of Lord of the Rings. Set in the imaginary world of Middle-earth--home to many strange beings, and most notably hobbits, a peace-loving 'little people, ' cheerful and shy.
