A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World (Large Print / Library Binding)
This is a wild story -- from beginning to end. There isn't another dystopian book like it and it truly is about a quest to find one's self. And with a grand twist that no one will see coming, this propulsive book will resonate with you long after the last page. Highly recommended.

When a beloved family dog is stolen, her owner sets out on a life-changing journey through the ruins of our world to bring her back in this fiercely compelling tale of survival, courage, and hope.
About the Author
C. A. Fletcher has children and dogs. He lives in Scotland and writes for a living.
You’ve got to love a Wyoming sheriff who’s strong and stoic but also humane and a quoter of literature and philosophy! In Land of Wolves, Walt Longmire’s investigating the death of a Basque shepherd and its possible link to a powerful family with a violent past, all while a renegade wolf is roaming the mountains picking off sheep, and possibly, men. Johnson’s plots are always strong, but it’s the relationships between the characters that make the books so addicting.If you’re looking for an especially exciting plot, try his previous book The Depth of Winter. Longmire leaves Wyoming for Mexico to track down his adult daughter, who’s been kidnapped. He seeks help from a contact in a bar in Juarez, and Johnson writes, “His face became somber, and his mouth hung open as if he were tasting the air between us like a snake.” It ramps up from there! - reviewed by Nikki
