As with all the gazetteers, the Five Shires is very in-depth, adding whole swathes of background detail to Mystara. Of special note is that this was written entirely by Ed Greenwood, and I haven't come across much non-FR material by him over the years.

It shines a different light on halflings, certainly giving them an identity beyond Tolkien's 'farmers and scouts' stereotype. But overall its value depends on whether you're interested in developing or using the Hin a great deal.

Reasonable scan considering its age. Basic chapter bookmarks included.

Great product, poor scans. This is probably the best thing Ed Greenwood ever did for TSR, presenting a fresh and innovative take of halflings. Yes they still smell like hobbits but are leant depth and fascination by some curly new conceptas.

Well worth a read for any GM/DM running a campaign where hte diminutive halfling leives.
