Flight from Amon Hen by Jay Johnstone

Frodo sat on the Seat of Seeing and immediately he was able to see telescopically for hundreds of miles in all directions because of its magical properties. It was at this point that Frodo made his choice to go to Mordor. Frodo now truly understood how evil the One Ring was, and knew that sooner or later it would corrupt all of his friends, as it had corrupted Boromir. In making that decision to walk alone into the land of the Dark Lord, Frodo showed that the Hobbits possessed, perhaps, the greatest courage of all.
