This is an excellent survival story, well written, and full of compeling, fully drawn characters.

He felt as if he had been dead for years. Gradually, however, vision sharpened. Perception returned tared up at was white, but oddly grai. Perception returned tared up at was white, but oddly grainy and close above him. With a great effort he managed to turn his head, and saw shapes that he gradually made out to be a small bedside table, several chairs, and a white screen of the sort used in hospitals. In all, a single room, with a window at the far end that let in a yellow, summer sunlight he had not seen for quite a while

by Gordon R. Chapter 1. The bull would not charge. Yes, we’ll certainly take you with us, ah-what’s your world name, Wolfling? Earthman, High-born, Jim answered. James Keil stamped his foot and shouted at the animal, but still it would not charge-and it was programmed to charge. Or rather, it was programmed to still be willing to charge at this point in the bullfight. Yes, well-come to our ship, Earthman. The Throne World will appreciate seeing you, she said. She glanced past him at the other members of his cuadrilla. But not these others, these assistants of yours; no point in cluttering up the ship.

Bill Waltham has a sneaking suspicion that a few important details were purposely withheld from him when he receives his assignment to the planet Dilbia. At first, the project - to teach the planet's bear-like inhabitants basic agricultural skills - seems a straightforward, though boring, undertaking for a young engineer on the rise. It's obvious that Cletus Graeme-limping, mild-mannered scholarly-doesn't belong on a battling field, but instead at a desk working on his fourth book on battle strategy and tactics.

One hundred years into the future, the first expedition from Earth reaches Alpha Centurai III and discovers that all life, including humankind, is governed by the Throne World and Earth is only a primitive outpost, but one man from Earth will show the High-Born something unexpected. Reissue.

This is one of Dickson's best. Like many of his works, it features a protagonist who is genetically superior: stronger, faster, and above all smarter than his fellows. What happens when he deliberately confronts the rulers of an interstellar empire? They are the Highborn, seven foot tall humanoids who have been bred for centuries to be superior in every way. They are in fact human, but nothing like Earthlings. Our hero quickly becomes embroiled in their deadly politics, and the results are seismic.

I read this as a teen and every once in awhile the mood strikes me to read it again. Not complex, no dark angst, just a fun read. I want to read about a heroic guy . . . and this fits the bill. Been a Gordon R Dickson fan for a long time and this is a quick read.
Arcanefire
A story written 40 years ago, originally published in Analog. It is a fast moving story of the triumph of the earth man over the hide bound galactics. Even though their technology is superior, he is able to use his anthropological insights and his unexpected physical capabilities to win through.
Realistic
A very good book that will make the reader think about mankind and where we are ultimately headed. As a consequence this book stays with you even after you finish it. Exciting plot with unforeseen twists, lively flow and pacing, intriguing characters, I didn't want it to end. I liked it so much that I gave it to my husband to read. He in turn enjoyed it as well. This is a though provoking book that any science fiction fan will enjoy reading.

Good book. Classic science fiction. I agree with some reviews about racist overtones although the book is 48 years old and was written in different time with different sensibilities

Brought back memories of first time I read this over 30 years ago. A pleasant way to spend an evening.

Wolfling is a classic bit of vintage sci-fi by one of the truly great sci-fi authors. I first encountered this when I temporarily swiped my dad's copy. I liked it so much I determined to get my own copy. It is a fascinating look at a possible future.
I've been looking for this book for nearly 20 years. I read it back in the 70's, then lost my copy. It's not a long book by most scifi standards, but it caught my attention, and I've enjoyed reading it again. I think my grandsons will enjoy it as well.
