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.

    " I didn't hate it because the writing wasn't bad but I thought it was a boring and predictable book. With a topic such as this one, I think a writer needs to take extreme care to not make it sound like a "poor me" story and this writer didn't take enough care. "

    " This book tugs at your heart strings. I have many friends with autistic children and this book reminds me of the things they have had to endure just to ensure their kids received a proper education. It all disappears as you read this single journey wondering how you can dislike closed minded ignorant people given the joy one boy learns to share... This is a mild tear jerker but well worth the emotional read. "
