"Moreta's ride"

This book gives the story of Moreta's Last ride as mentioned in the Dragonflight/Dragonquest era of Pern. While it's not as compelling as the later timelines, it goes into depth about things glossed over in the harper ballads, and adds greater depth to the history and character of one of the most famous dragon-riders of Pern.

Moreta is a warm, sensitive, yet ultimately tough woman who rises to a challenging situation with compassion and determination.

A thouroughly enjoyable read that tugs at your heartstrings, a word of warning the ending will leave you weeping.

I've read this book several times, and will probably read it several more, a must read if you want to understand the emotion evoked in the later time-lines at the mention of Moreta, but not essential for the understanding of the rest of the series.
