Publisher's Summary

Never had there been as close a bonding as the one that existed between the daring and adventurous young Lord Jaxom and his extraordinary white dragon, Ruth. Pure white and incredibly agile, Ruth was a dragon of many talents, though almost everyone on Pern thought he was a runt that would never amount to anything.But Jaxom knew better, knew he could teach his dragon to fly and to destroy the deadly silver Threads that fell from the sky. Disobeying all rules, Jaxom and Ruth trained in secret. Their illicit flights seemed but a minor disobedience - until they found themselves in the path of danger and in a position to prevent the biggest disaster of all.

One of my all time favorites!

The story of Jaxom and his unusual white dragon Ruth is my favorite of the Dragonriders of Pern. I also highly recommend the Harperhall trilogy.

Best of the Dragonriders series

This is my favorite story from the Dragonriders series and Dick Hill is an able narrator. The world is wonderfully fleshed out and inviting. McCaffrey does an interesting trick with the third book in this trilogy- the main characters from the first two books become supporting characters for the third which allows different aspects of their personalities to come out because you see them from a different point of view. I strongly recommend the first two books in this series, Dragonflight and Dragonquest, as well as the Harperhall trilogy (Dragonsong, Dragonsinger and Dragondrums).
