The Aid of the Wild-men by Ted Nasmith.

Ghân is the chief of the Drúedain, the wild men who inhabit Drúadan Forest. In the third volume of the Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King, he aids Théoden, King of Rohan, to reach Minas Tirith with reinforcements before it is conquered by the enemy. In return, Théoden promises that his people will have peace with the Drúedain, and that his people will wage war and drive away the Gorgûn (Orcs), that have been troubling the Drúedain.

Following the War of the Ring, Aragorn, as king of Gondor, decrees that the Drúadan Forest formally belongs to Ghan and his people, and that no one else may enter that forest without their permission.
