Where is The Lord of the Rings set? I say it’s the Americas. Here’s why:
- Pipeweed. That’s tobacco, sure enough, and that’s a native American species.
- Potatoes. Same deal: the Americas.
- The Great River. Nothing in Europe, and especially nothing in England, can compare with either the Mighty Mississippi or the Amazon.
Conclusion: The Lord of the Rings, totally in the Americas.
