Summary
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 idea: why not take Rowan to Mongolia, the one place in the world where horses and shamanic healing intersected?
Summary
Describes the author's attempts to help his autistic son, Rowan, by taking the family to a remote area of Mongolia in order to consult shamans and allow Rowan to interact with horses and other animals in a quiet, accepting environment
