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