I've seen "at every turn" to mean "whenever or wherever you go", and is "around every turn" interchangeable with it?
ex)The Lord of the Rings.
The One Ring lost for centuries has been found. It is given to a Hobbit named Frodo. To save the world from the Dark Lord, Frodo and his friends must travel far away and destroy the ring. They face dangers around every turn, but they cannot give up.

It sounds more like somebody's summary of Tolkien to me.
It's a while since I've seen it but I thought those lines were from the spoken introduction somewhere near the beginning of The Two Towers, part 2 of the LOTR film trilogy, and I was under the impression that much of the narration was taken directly from the books.
I think I should give up tonight - that's the second time I've been utterly and completely wrong!
It's from a Korean middle-school English textbook, so it may have been written by a Korean, and I think "at every turn" is proper instead.
