What We're Reading Now
"This book explores the life of one of Pern's most loved and respected characters: Robinton, the MasterHarper. Beginning with his birth in the Harper Hall and following until the early events of the first Pern book, this novel fills in a wealth of information about Robinton as a character and Pern as a world. One of the most rewarding aspects was to watch the birth of later-important characters and their early rise to power. For an ideal starting point in the world of Pern, read Dragonflight, also by McCaffrey."

In a time when the deadly scourge Thread has not fallen on Pern for centuries--and many dare to hope that Thread will never fall again--a boy is born to Harper Hall. A musical prodigy who has the ability to speak with the dragons, he is called Robinton, and he is destined to be one of the most famous and beloved leaders Pern has ever known.
It is a perilous time for the harpers who sing of Thread--they are being turned away from holds, derided, attacked, even beaten. In this climate of unrest, Robinton will come into his own. But despite the tragedies that beset his own life, he continues to believe in music and in the dragons, and he is determined to save his beloved Pern from itself--so that the dragonriders can be ready to fly against the dreaded Thread when at last it returns . . .
