Synopsis

In the beginning there were dragons, in this world and in others, in dreams and nightmares. Since those creatures, which arose from the primeval chaos before the creation of the stars or the planets, dragons have fascinated mankind, through the "Epic of Gilgamesh", the tales of Bilbo Baggins, or Anne McCaffrey's tales of Pern, and a thousand other books that witness their visitations and encounters, habits, adventures, friends and foes.;In this book, Anne McCaffrey takes readers to a universe of dragons that encompasses both the classic tales and the modern novels. She explains the dragons' origins, foibles, loves and hates, those which are dangerous and those which are friendly, the clever, the hopeless, the loners and the leaders.
