Even if they did not have Sauron to fear, Saruman the White, once the wisest of the wizards, has allied himself with the Enemy and seeks the Ring for himself. The narrative is divided into two books, Book I and II, tentatively titled by Tolkien as The Ring Sets out and The Ring Goes South [2] which have not been used in the publication; other abandoned titles were The First Journey and The Journey of the Nine Companions.

Extensive appendices outline more details of the history, cultures, genealogies, and languages that Tolkien imagined for the peoples of Middle-earth. IX - The Great River - they notice Gollum following them down the river on a log; Orc archers attack the boats; a Nazgûl on its steed is seen flying above the Fellowship's boats, and is shot down by Legolas, who fires an arrow at the rider's flying beast; passing the Argonath, they reach the Falls of Rauros, where they must choose between traveling on the east or west bank of the river to pass the falls. V - The Bridge of Khazad-dûm - Attacked by Orcs, trolls and a Balrog of Morgoth, they make their way to the Bridge of Khazad-dûm, where Gandalf and the Balrog fall.Frodo decides to leave the next day through the Old Forest, as it is an unexpected direction, rather than travelling on the roads.
