The saga of Moreta's ride is often mentioned in the earlier books, and here is the full story.

I spent most of the book thinking "I'm not really interested in these people the way I am in the people in the stories about the 9th Pass" and yet I did get a bit teary-eyed at the climax even though I knew what was going to happen.

How it all began. The build-up to First Fall is tremendous. It's impossible to read it without mentally shrieking 'Get under cover NOW'.

The end of the first Interval and beginning of second Pass. Wonderful the way Chalkin evolves from a joke scrooge to an inhuman monster right before our eyes. ( )

Perfect for diehard fans as well as readers discovering McCaffrey for the first time, this dazzling new volume features three classic novels from the early years of Pern–Dragonsdawn, Dragonseye, and Moreta.

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 to protect a beautiful and extraordinary planet.
