|J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit CED|
The party is rescued from the goblins and wargs by the great eagles (Side 2, 02:42).
"The wolves yammered and gnashed their teeth; the goblins yelled and stamped with rage,|
and flung their heavy spears in the air in vain. Over them swooped the eagles;
the dark rush of their beating wings smote them to the floor or drove them far away;
their talons tore at goblin faces. Other birds flew to the tree-tops and seized the dwarves,
who were scrambling up now as far as ever they dared to go.
Poor little Bilbo was very nearly left behind again! He just managed to catch hold of Dori's legs,
as Dori was borne off last of all; and they went together above the tumult and burning,
Bilbo swinging in the air with his arms nearly breaking."
