The spectacular planet Pern seems a paradise to its new colonists - until unimaginable terror turns it into hell. Suddenly deadly spores are falling like silver threads from the sky, destroying everyone and everything they touch. Pern is in mortal danger. The only thing that can stop the Thread is the fire from Pern's flying dragons. Now, the colonists must join forces with the dragons to burn the Thread before the parasite devours any and all organic life - and turns lush Pern into a barren wasteland.

On Dragonwings traces the story of the early generations on Pern. From the colonists who first created the fire breathing dragons for protection, through the rise of the dragonriders, these three novels set readers on a daring quest in protect a beautiful and extraordinary planet.
