The Horse Boy: A Father's Quest to Heal His Son (Large Print) (Thorndike Basic)

The Horse Boy: A Father's Quest to Heal His Son (Large Print) (Thorndike Basic) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When his son Rowan was diagnosed with autism, Rupert Isaacson was devastated, afraid he might never be able to communicate with his child. But when Isaacson, a lifelong horseman, rode their neighbor's horse with Rowan, Rowan improved immeasurably. He was struck with a crazy idea: why not take Rowan to Mongolia, the one place in the world where horses and shamanic healing intersected?

THE HORSE BOY is the dramatic and heartwarming story of that impossible adventure. In Mongolia, the family found undreamed of landscapes and people, unbearable setbacks, and advances beyond their wildest dreams. This is a deeply moving, truly one-of-a-kind story--of a family willing to go to the ends of the earth to help their son, and of a boy learning to connect with the world for the first time.

Synopsis:

After his son Rowan is diagnosed with autism, Isaacson, a lifelong horseman, takes Rowan to Mongolia, the one place in the world where horses and shamanic healing intersect. This is the dramatic and heartwarming story of that impossible adventure.
