A sequel to Valerie Hobb’s ‘Sheep,’ ‘Wolf’ is the story of Jack, the aging border collie, who now has a comfortable life on a farm, with his teenaged owner, Luke. Told in two voices, Jack, the faithful dog and a stray wolf’s voice, readers will feel as if they can understand the thought process of these two similar but distinct species of canine. Rumors of a rabid animal circulate Jack’s sheep farming community, sending fear into the farmers and sheep dogs alike. As these two canine worlds collide, their own problems affect whether they will deal with illness, aging and the need for companionship. Readers who are looking to vindicate wolves as predators of farm animals, won’t easily find their answers in this book. The characterization of Jack is given greater voice and time, thereby eliciting greater empathy and understanding by readers. This story provides a platform to discuss how animals help or hinder humans.
