Thanks to McCaffreys bold and generous imagination, we have known what it is to fly. We have touched the fiery hearts and minds of the great fighting dragons, witnessed their passionate loves and violent hates, and felt the deep, unbreakable bonds that join them to their riders. McCaffreys creative magic has made Pern real--a home to hold in the heart. Its inhabitants are more than characters in a book.
