From the Publisher:
When Jake Mendoza, who lives in the Smokehill National Park where his father runs the Makepeace Institute of Integrated Dragon Studies, goes on his first solo overnight in the park, he finds an infant dragon whose mother has been killed by a poacher. Reprint.Dragons are extinct in the wild, but the Makepeace Institute of Integrated Dragon Studies in Smokehill National Park is home to about two hundred of the worldÂ's remaining creatures. Until Jake discovers a dying dragon that has given birthÂ?and one of the babies is still alive.
Annotation:
With a triumvirate of fantasy, adventure, and coming-of-age elements, DRAGONHAVEN follows the compelling story of 14-year-old Jack and an orphaned baby dragon. For centuries, humans have considered dragons to be highly dangerous, non-sentient animals, almost mythic. Where Jack lives, in one of the handful of sanctuaries for these now almost extinct creatures, he finds a dying dragonlet deep in the wilderness. Although he knows that his actions may have huge consequences for both man and dragonkind, Jack takes the dragon home, and experiences the most intense transformation of his life.

Praise

"A sharply incisive, wildly intelligent dragon fantasy involving profound layers of science and society, love and loss and nature and nurture." 8/1/2007

"McKinley delivers an impeccably well-developed and haunting world of gritty isolation, populated by mysterious and majestic dragons and the self-sacrificing humans dedicated to saving them." 11/1/2007
