Dragondrums by Anne McCaffrey

Dragondrums is the third installment in the Harper Hold segment.  Piemur, a rascally apprentice in the Harper Hall takes us through an adventure on Pern set during the time of Lessa, F'lar, Master Robinton, and the Oldtimers.

Although there are dragons they are not the focus and the adds depth and character to the world of Pern.  Everyone can not be a dragonrider, there are also crafts, holders, villains, harpers, healers, and even drudges to take out the ashes.

This is one of my favorites and was written in 1979 which is when some of the best Pern novels were penned.  It is enjoyable to visit with old friends in the summer.
