This would be a great gift for the hardcore Pern lover in your life. The maps are fantastic and would enhance the reading of the series, particularly the first seven books. While there are lots of great details in here for a dedicated fan, it adds nothing new to the series, so it could be easily skipped by the casual reader. ( )

The only thing that could make this book better would be if it could be updated. I love maps and love the stories of Pern so I found this book to be a perfect combination. It answered so many questions and gave clear visualization to this magical world. ( )

This is a good reference for Pern fans with maps, hold plans, and travel itineraries for many characters. It even has details of F'lar's knife fights with Fax and T'ron. The book suffers from some of the same problems as the Dragonlover's Guide to Pern: It only goes through the Morteta stories. Anything that was written after Moreta is not covered. But as far as it goes, it really makes the planet of Pern come alive. If you are into Pern, you need this atlas. ( )

Essential visitors guide to Pern. The maps and illustrations make getting around very easy, even if you are not on dragonback. The illustrations also provide a nice insight to the physical structure of Pern. ( )

A good resource for the avid Pern fan, but not necessary for casual readers. It is interesting to see places referred to in novels, and how time and distance relate. Fonstad does clean, easy to understand, drawings. ( )
