The band begins its journey and Bilbo leaves [[the Shire]] noticing the increasingly alien scenery around him, with strange people and speeches, and songs and customs Bilbo never knew before. Presumably they passed through the [[Bree-land]]. Eventually they found themselves far into the [[Lone-lands]] without any inns or nice roads. Dreary dark hills rise higher and higher, with mysterious castles.

One night, around a month after their departure, it just begins to rain although it was just before [[June]]. By the time dusk approaches, the whole company is tired, hungry, ready to camp, and annoyed at Gandalf's mysterious disappearance earlier in the day. Suddenly they see what looks like the light of a fire in the distance. They move closer to investigate it, and Bilbo is sent ahead in his first official task as burglar. As he approaches a clearing in the woods, Bilbo sees three huge [[trolls]] sitting around a fire, eating mutton. Bilbo tries to make off with one of the trolls’ money purses, but the [[Talking purse|purse]] alerts the trolls to his presence and they grab him. Trolls will eat just about anything, but they are also short-tempered and dull-witted. They proceed to fight about how to interrogate Bilbo.

The commotion attracts the dwarves, who come to the clearing one at a time. The trolls stop fighting just long enough to hide in the trees and throw a sack over each approaching dwarf. Soon, they have everyone tied up except Bilbo, who they’ve forgotten. The trolls decide to cook the dwarves immediately, but then a voice, which sounds like one of the trolls, starts an argument, and the three trolls start fighting again. This fighting goes on for quite some time until the trolls notice that it is almost dawn. The sun peeks over the horizon and the trolls all freeze—sunlight turns trolls to stone.
