"If you care for journeys there and back, out of the comfortable Western world, over the edge of the Wild, and home again, and can take interest in a humble hero (blessed with a little wisdom and a little courage and considerable good luck), here is a record of such a journey and such a traveler....In the following the path of this humble adventurer, you learn by the way (as he did) —if you do not already know all about these things— much about trolls, goblins, dwarves, and elves, and get some glimpses into the history and politics of a neglected but important period."
