Finally together in one volume, the first three books
in the world's most beloved science fiction series,
THE DRAGONRIDERS OF PERN, by Anne McCaffrey, one of
the great science fiction writers of all time:

all the others. And for those just discovering this
magical place, there are incomparable tales of danger,
deceit, and daring, just waiting to be explored..
HOW CAN ONE GIRL SAVE AN ENTIRE WORLD?
To the nobles who live in Benden Weyr, Lessa is nothing
but a ragged kitchen girl. For most of her life she has
survived by serving those who betrayed her father and
took over his lands. Now the time has come for Lessa to
shed her disguise—and take back her stolen birthright.
But everything changes when she meets a queen dragon.
The bond they share will be deep and last forever. It
will protect them when, for the first time in centuries,
Lessa’s world is threatened by Thread, an evil substance
that falls like rain and destroys everything it touches.
Dragons and their Riders once protected the planet from
Thread, but there are very few of them left these days.
Now brave Lessa must risk her life, and the life of her
beloved dragon, to save her beautiful world. . . .
On Pern, men breed and train great fire-breathing dragons
to help them fight the deadly silver Threads that fall from
the sky, destroying all life-forms, whenever the Red Star
The White Dragon:
Jaxom, a rebellious young aristocrat, and Ruth, his white
dragon, fly into another time to retrieve the queen's stolen
egg, thereby averting a dragonrider war, and find their planet
threatened once again by a Threadfall.
