Summary: Selected and edited by Mr. Frodo Baggins from a trunk full of letters and documents bequeathed to him along with Bag End. There are many more letters, particularly from the King of Erebor, Thorin Oakenshield, which are not included. The letters of Bilbo Baggins over this time, while many and varied, are preserved in the archives of Erebor and are not replicated here. The letters excerpted below cover a span of twenty-six years: from Third Age 2942, when Bilbo returned to the Shire from the Lonely Mountain for the first time, to T.A. 2968.

I must remember that is spring there now, and I have never seen your home in spring. I do not know how the spring sunlight looks as it slants across your kitchen table, or what birds sing outside your window, or how the air smells when scented with all those flowers whose names I cannot remember. )

Story Summary: In a Middle-Earth where Erebor never fell, a shadow remains in the heart of the Lonely Mountain. Bilbo Baggins finds himself drawn reluctantly into a quest that will lead him across the continent--from Bree to Lake Evendim to the icy North and beyond--with a party of five dwarves searching for an artifact that will cure the ailing King Thrór.
Chapter Summary: Bilbo prepares to leave Erebor and farewells are said--but farewells are not forever.

I can't leave behind the silver salt and pepper shakers Dori gave me, or the crystal buttons from Mîn. And it would be rude to not take the bronze shield from Gimli, although I can't imagine when I'd need a shield! )

Chapter Summary: Winter turns into spring in Erebor: bittersweet times as the days grow longer and different partings draw near.

There was so much work to be done, so much to be set right. So much to do and so much to learn, and for a while it seemed like they had all the time in the world. )

Chapter Summary: Thorin returns to Erebor, and Bilbo Baggins enters the Lonely Mountain for the first time.

Bilbo found himself missing Fíli and Kíli's chatter intensely. Cheering words seemed to falter in the bleak wind, and the locked and hidden door seemed somehow ominous. )

Chapter Summary: The road from Bree to the Misty Mountains is a smooth one. Only a few crises arise, such as goblin attacks and public speaking.

After hearing Fíli and Kíli praising Bilbo's cooking extravagantly, the wagonmaster decided to put him to work helping with meals. This arrangement made Bilbo feel more useful, but had the drawback of making him run afoul of the official caravan cook, a fussy and meticulous dwarf with very strong ideas of proper cooking. )

Chapter Summary: Yuletide in the Shire: dancing, skating, and an exchange of stars (and perhaps a little more). A joyous Star Festival to all of you kind enough to come along on the journey so far!

Bilbo was at the center of a ring of wide-eyed hobbits, relating tales of his adventures. From his gestures, Thorin inferred that he had gotten to the undead of Fornost stealing his mother's umbrella. )

Chapter Summary: The Shire is introduced to Bilbo's "friends from the East," and it's unclear which of the two will never be the same again.

Thorin's voice had that thoughtful, musing tone that said his mind was elsewhere, but it didn't sound ominous the way it had those long, terrible days going down the Anduin. It sounded warm, comfortable. Bilbo would have said it sounded happy, except he realized he had no idea what a happy Thorin would sound like. )

Chapter Summary: Bilbo proves to be braver and more resilient than perhaps even he suspected, and Thorin reaches a point of crisis.

It was a terrible time, skulking and trembling in the shadows, hiding behind racks of rusted and bloody weapons, creeping always downward, searching. )

Chapter Summary: The party finds the Chamber of Marzabul--and something else finds them.

Desperate hands pulled crackling parchment from shelves, and the room was filled with the sound of voices murmuring in Khuzdul. Bilbo picked up a book and shuddered as the cover fell off at his gentle touch, revealing spiky writing on yellowing paper. )

Chapter Summary: The party leaves Lothlórien and makes its way to the gates of Khazad-dûm, as Thorin struggles with the return of his dark mood.

They heard the party well before they arrived, four dwarvish voices roaring out a drinking-song of Erebor, with three elvish voices following along with some hesitation. )

Chapter Summary: The party arrives in the wood of Lothlórien and seeks council from its Lord and Lady.

Birds sang among the trees, a sweet liquid sound, and the leaves rustled beneath their feet. The cool air seemed to be filled with light to Bilbo, each breath driving away the darkness that had haunted them since leaving Rivendell. )

Chapter Summary: Discovered and pursued by goblins, the party desperately searches for an exit to the warrens beneath the Misty Mountains.

Everything seemed to be moving so slowly, yet at the same time too fast, far too fast. Thorin tore his eyes from the fight and groped for an arrow from Kíli's quiver, his hands clumsy on the unfamiliar weapon. )

Chapter Summary: Beneath the Misty Mountains, the fate of Middle Earth veers in a slightly different direction.

Bilbo tried to catch his breath, feeling battered and bruised. He was lying on pebbly rocks and the darkness around him was shot through with eerie rippling light and the whisper of water. )

There was a humming sound behind him, and Thorin turned to see Bilbo absent-mindedly humming under his breath, almost smiling. )
