But when Isaacson, a lifelong horseman, rode their neighbour's horse with Rowan, his son improved immeasurably. Isaacson was struck with a crazy idea: why not take Rowan to Mongolia, the one place in the world where horses and shamanic healing intersect? This is the dramatic and heartwarming story of that adventure
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
