Default Question about Dragonsdawn

I don't have access to the book right now, but it's driving me nuts due to something else, so can someone PLEASE tell me, isn't Wind Blossom Kitti Ping's GRANDDAUGHTER?
Thanks in advance!

I've wondered about that myself, because in Dragonsdawn Wind Blossom is said to be Kitty Ping's Granddaughter, but in the new Pern book (Dragonsblood), she is called her daughter! I really don't know which is correct.

You are correct that in Dragonsdawn Wind Blossom is referred to as the granddaughter of Kit Ping Yung. "Kitti Ping and Wind Blossom, who stood slightly behing her grandmother's left side, waited patiently" from page 241.

I also researched Dragonflight and Dragonquest, as they related to the story.

Cris is right, nice quote from Todd there Cris, that answers the question exactly! I've always read it as her daughter, but I've only ever read the UK versions I think

UK editions consequently name Wind Blossom the granddaughter
US editions consequently name Wind Blossom tge daughter

Dragonsblood will force this issue... Wind Blossom is Kitti Ping's daughter.
In Dragonsblood we meet Kitti Ping's granddaughter: Emorra

Default That is exactly what I wanted

to know, I was totally confused when I picked up Dragonsblood & read that but I didn't want to say anything specific for those that hadn't picked it up. I feel better now! I put that book down as soon as I thought I'd read that glaring error I was so mad!!! As long as that's what's up I can pick it back up with no hard feelings, lol. Thanks for the info!!!!!
