Read full description of the books The Dragonriders of Pern: Dragonflight / Dragonquest / The White Dragon:

The first three books in the world's most beloved science-fiction series--finally together in one volume!

Dragonflight

After ten long Turns, Lessa was ready to come out of hiding, to claim her birthright and become Weyrwoman of Benden. But suddenly, the deadly silver Threads once again threatened all Pern with destruction. The mighty telepathic dragons were fewer in number, not nearly enough to protect the planet in its hour of greatest peril...until Lessa hatched a daring and dangerous scheme to rally support from people who had long ago ceased to exist.

Dragonquest
Another Turn and the deadly silver Threads began falling again. The bold dragonriders took to the air once more to destroy the shimmering strands before they hit the ground. But F'lar knew he had to find a better way to protect his beloved Pern, before the Oldtimers could breed any more dissent...before his brother F'nor could launch another suicide mission...and before those dratted fire-lizards could stir up any more trouble!

The White Dragon
Never before had there been as close a bond as that between adventurous Lord Jaxom and his extraordinary pure white dragon, Ruth. Though Ruth was a dragon of many talents, almost everyone on Pern thought he was a runt. But Jaxom knew better, iknew he could teach his dragon to fly and to destroy the deadly silver Threads...a belief that put them both in the path of danger and in a position to prevent the biggest disaster of all!

Read information about the author

Ebook The Dragonriders of Pern: Dragonflight / Dragonquest / The White Dragon read Online! Anne McCaffrey was born on April 1st, 1926, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Her parents were George Herbert McCaffrey, BA, MA PhD (Harvard), Colonel USA Army (retired), and Anne Dorothy McElroy McCaffrey, estate agent. She had two brothers: Hugh McCaffrey (deceased 1988), Major US Army, and Kevin Richard McCaffrey, still living.

Anne was educated at Stuart Hall in Staunton Virginia, Montclair High School in Montclair, New Jersey, and graduated cum laude from Radcliffe College, majoring in Slavonic Languages and Literatures.

Her working career included Liberty Music Shops and Helena Rubinstein (1947-1952). She married in 1950 and had three children: Alec Anthony, b. 1952, Todd, b.1956, and Georgeanne, b.1959.

Anne McCaffrey’s first story was published by Sam Moskowitz in Science Fiction + Magazine and her first novel was published by Ballantine Books in 1967. By the time the three children of her marriage were comfortably in school most of the day, she had already achieved enough success with short stories to devote full time to writing. Her first novel, Restoree, was written as a protest against the absurd and unrealistic portrayals of women in s-f novels in the 50s and early 60s. It is, however, in the handling of broader themes and the worlds of her imagination, particularly the two series The Ship Who Sang and the fourteen novels about the Dragonriders of Pern that Ms. McCaffrey’s talents as a story-teller are best displayed.

She died at the age of 85, after suffering a massive stroke on 21 November 2011.
