    On the beautiful planet Pern, colonized for centuries, Land Holders and Craftsmen have traditionally tithed food and supplies to the dragonweyrs to which they are bound. In times past, the mighty telepathic dragons and their riders were the only protection from the dreaded, life-threatening Thread. Now those times may be returning....

    A lovely listen

    The action came in waves - a great pace for an audio book because you had good places to stop. The last hour though was fast paced 'til the end! A g..Show More »

    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.

    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.
