Wild Men of the Woods

 / Wild Man of the Woods
   A name for the Drúedain in Rohan.
   At the end of the Third Age, a remnant of the Drúedain still lived beneath the feet of the White Mountains, and in the lands westward.
   Theirs was a strange and ancient race of Men, with an unusual affinity with nature, and unique powers. The Northmen who settled in Rohan, though, knew nothing of their ancestry and imagined them to be hardly more than beasts, at least until the time of the War of the Ring. For this reason the Rohirrim called them the Wild Men of the Woods.
