The Backlands were a large lawless, monster-haunted frontier in the Western Heartlands.[1]


The Backlands are all the land between the east of Serpent's Tail Stream, the Forest of Wyrms, and the Trielta Hills; north of the River Reaching; west of Anauroch; and south of the Greypeak Mountains.[1]


Once the Backlands were covered by the fertile farms of Netheril.[1]
