Hobbit Frodo Baggins lives a light-hearted and jovial life in the Shire of Middle-Earth with his adoptive hobbit father Bilbo Baggins. It is Bilbo's 111th birthday, and he intends to celebrate it in style, as he will be leaving for Rivendell, the civilization of the elves the next day, unbeknownst to Frodo. The extraordinary wizard Gandalf the Grey arrives at the party and catches Bilbo before he leaves, convincing him to leave a powerful and ancient magic ring to Frodo, known as The One Ring. This ring was made by Sauron himself, a dark and mighty entity that lost in the war fought by men to save Middle-Earth, and is now scrambling for power. Gandalf explains that Sauron is on the rise, and that a long and difficult quest must be taken to destroy The One Ring in the fires of Mt. Doom, where it was originally forged. Is this simple Hobbit up to the task? Without training, brawn, or resources at his side, will Frodo and the friends he gathers along the way be able to vanquish Sauron, and effectively evil, and save Middle-Earth?

In the first installment in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the young hobbit Frodo Baggins is given the task of bearing the One Ring to the elf city of Rivendell. Once there, he teams up with a fellowship of men, elves, dwarves, and hobbits and begins the long, perilous journey to Mount Doom, also known as Orodruin.

Here in the first book of the Lord of the Rings we meet the fellowship of men, hobbits, an elf, a dwarf, and a wizard. Their mission is to take the one ring to be destroyed at Mt.Doom. In this first part we see how hobbits live, the chase of the ringwraiths, and meet a demonic creature deep in the mines of Moria.
