Update - This book has been cancelled

There is some information available about the book "Wheelbarrows at Dawn: Memories of Hilary Tolkien" by Angela Gardner and Neil Holford (Deagol).

The biography of Hilary Tolkien, brother to Ronald (JRR Tolkien). Sharing their formative years together and then heading into the trenches of The Great War, the book shows the correspondence between the Tolkien brothers and their wives during the war and since, with family photographs and letters. Though about Hilary, this books also sheds light on and brings new information to the world of JRR Tolkien - including the only known instance of a signed photograph by Ronald, and a recent discovery of an original JRRT drawing


The Standard Book is £30 (ISBN 09780955190049), cover shown below, and the Deluxe edition is limited to 250 copies at £75 (ISBN: 09780955190056) from ADC books.

On Saturday the 14th August 2010, I will be at the "Edge of the Wild Event" In Morton in Marsh, so am interested in who else from the forum may be attending as it would be great to meet up.

I also like to know if anyone is going to Mark Faith's Welsh event held on the same dates as it would be nice to get some feedback on both events from board members.

I apologise in advance for members outside the UK who probably can't make either event
