Sunlands

The lands of the Harad

A name among the Hobbits of the Shire for the hot southerly region more commonly referred to as the Harad. The Shire-hobbits knew almost nothing about the Sunlands, which were a place of distant legend to them. They at least understood that a people of the Big Folk lived there, who they referred to as 'Swertings'. They also had folktales of a creature they knew as an 'oliphaunt', a remote recollection of the monstrous war-beasts the Haradrim called Múmakil.
