Uh... oh, how weird. I was going to leap up and name the book, but then I re-read the description, and it wasn't the one I was going to say. That's a dragon book that I'm not even remotely familiar with. It sounds like such a high degree of awesome that it would be worth tracking down an out-of-print copy.

Thanks for the tip - I posted there.
I remember not being particularly impressed. However, I was at the time an arrogant high school kid with a bug up my butt about draconity and a lot of self-interest in having dragons be more than glorified forces of nature. It would be interesting reading the book again and seeing how it holds up with a more mature perspective as a reader.

Damn, I *know* that book, I read it back in high school too. All I can remember, though, is that I got it from the University of Washington... and some meaningless cover design details.

(Just a poke that we found it and I've updated the post with details.)

Yes, that is completely and totally it. :)
