trying to remember some book titles, help please Ok, some books I read in highschool were really good but, for the life of me, I can't remember what they are called. Also, know one book title but can't find it anywhere since I read it in highschool. Book 1: A native american boy who is raised by people (probably whites) other than his parents. He ends up being a professional rodeo rider. I think it takes place in the early 20th century but I can't be sure on the time period. That's all I can remember from the book. Book 2: A science fiction book that describes the forming of a planet and it's first lifeforms and their first interaction with humans. I think the lifeforms are called Cheela or something like that and I remember they lived at 100 times the speed we do, their days were like 100 of ours and so on. Lastly, the book I have not been able to find ANYWHERE (Amazon.com, e-bay, libraries, bookstores) is called Pern by Anne McCaffrey. I know there's lots of books on that topic or series but I'm only interested in the very first one. It's the one that details the arrival of the very first human colonists, their first experiences with the deadly alien lifeforms they refer to as silver threads that fall from the sky in a regular planetary cycle. I've found every other book by her but I can't locate this one. If anyone knows where a copy is or has one, I'd sure be interested in buying it. Anyhow, if anyone has any useful insight on any of these books I'd appreciate it.
