Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
The U. S. has been devastated by worldwide financial collapse. Civilization as readers know it has disappeared. Marauding bands are terrorizing the countryside, killing and looting. Jeremy Bellamy Walthers' goal is to cross 2,000 miles of ravaged countryside to reach the security of his brother's Montana ranch. En route he befriends a wolf who becomes a partner and companion via verbal and nonverbal communication. The story deals with Jeremy's interaction with the wolf and the other human survivors of the economic collapse. Dickson has created another superior novel; it's colorful, well written, and peopled with well-developed, multidimensional characters. The wolf is especially fascinating. YAs who have cut their teeth on such works as George's Julie of the Wolves (Harper, 1972) or Mowatt's Never Cry Wolf (Little, 1963) will enjoy this survival story in sci/fi clothing. --John Lawson, Fairfax County Public Library, VA

    Eternally, my favorite book!

    First read this book in the early 1990s and have read it three more times since then. This book parallels what's happening in our world today (2011), and what the outcome could be.

    It is a survivalist type book and takes place mostly in the mid-west.

    I have bought numerous copies of this book for gifts and myself.

    It is an astounding, enjoyable, breathtaking read. If you can get your hands on a copy, DO IT!!

    Great book

    I began to read this book and then i lost it. I searched for months at places to get it, When i finaly did I was more than happy. The trials and the journey that Jeebe goes through and the changes that occurs is that of amazment. I would most recomend this book to anyone who enjoys dickson. If you don't even know his work thisa is a great book to get started in. *HINT books that are mentioned in the story really do exist. read them they will open you mind even more to the plight of the wolf.*

    This Could Happen

    I bought Wolf and Iorn 10 years ago Since then I have read this book (3) times I do not see Wolf and Iorn as Si-Fi What Happens in this book could very well happen to our World as we know it.The world died with mearly a whimper;It required only one domino to fall under the right conditions,to set a whole ranked row behind it tumbling.It fell with the collapse of a single bank.The run on this by mobs of people for money it did not have,drew in its creditors.Other banks began to tumble.The panic spread and governments intervened with funds to shore them up__only to find even their funds inadequate for this,as defaults became universal.The world economic web drew the collapse from nation to nation.Central governments fell:and the process of the world splitting into small and smaller self-sufficient pieces began.Phone systems were the first to die.Then electric services.Then transportation,with furnaces grown cold and refrigerators,like air conditioners,stilled for lack of fuel.Food ceased to reach the cities from outside.Supplies from anywhere else had become nonexistent;and people had begun to fight for what the stores still held;or to take what they had not and needed.It was the ninteenth century again.The whimper became a snarl.All this had been predicted in Jeebee's QSD computer screen.Like everyone,he had not believed it could come so quickly.

    A taut detailed and fascinating read. Mr. Dickson is an expert at telling a story that makes you feel as if you are looking over the shoulders of the participants. Highly recommended read.
