I: The Book of Lost Tales part 1, VII: THE FLIGHT OF THE NOLDOLI

This passage of the tale told by Lindo is a continuation from the previous chapter “The Theft of Melko and the Darkening of Valinor”. It features how a group of the Eldar, notoriously a lot of the Noldoli, leaves Valinor and wanders north in order to access the world, that is, the Great Lands (or Middle-Earth as we know the continent as in Tolkien’s later works).
