HOW CAN ONE GIRL SAVE AN ENTIRE WORLD?
To the nobles who live in Benden Weyr, Lessa is nothing but a ragged kitchen girl. For most of her life she has survived by serving those who betrayed her father and took over his lands. Now the time has come for Lessa to shed her disguise--and take back her stolen birthright.
But everything changes when she meets a queen dragon. The bond they share will be deep and last forever. It will protect them when, for the first time in centuries, Lessa''s world is threatened by Thread, an evil substance that falls like rain and destroys everything it touches. Dragons and their Riders once protected the planet from Thread, but there are very few of them left these days. Now brave Lessa must risk her life, and the life of her beloved dragon, to save her beautiful world. . . .

From the Publisher:
At a time when the number of Dragonriders has fallen too low for safety and only one Weyr trains the creatures and their riders, the Red Star approaches Pern, threatening the planet with disaster. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
Author Bio
Anne McCaffrey
Born in 1926, Anne McCaffrey became a writer somewhat later than most--her first novel, RESTOREE, was published in 1968. Prior to then, McCaffrey had studied Slavonic Language and Literature at Radcliffe College, been married and had three children, and devoted a lot of time and effort to music and acting, eventually becoming heavily involved with the American premiere of one of Carl Orff's stage pieces. Unquestionably, McCaffrey's major fiction work is the Dragon Riders of Pern series. It began auspiciously in 1967 with a Hugo Award-winning short story, "Weyr Search," that was expanded into her novel, DRAGONFLIGHT. Still going strong after more than 30 years, it is one of the most renowned series in the fantasy genre. The name of her home, Dragonhold-Underhill, is derived from these books. McCaffrey's first four books, RESTOREE, DECISION AT DOONA, DRAGONFLIGHT, and THE SHIP WHO SANG, are all classics written at a time when the worlds of science fiction and fantasy were largely dominated by male writers and male characters. McCaffrey's early writing stood in direct opposition the "establishment," and helped pave the way for other women writers. Her later material has continued in this vein, and while not perhaps achieving the commercial success of some of her contemporaries, has nonetheless maintained an extraordinarily high standard of quality.
