Rupert and Kristin Isaacson were heartbroken when they learned that their three-year-old son was autistic. And with each passing day Rowan's growing isolation, his uncontrollable fits and each failed treatment filled them with despair. One day Rowan escaped and ran into a field of horses. Rupert watched in horror, but saw a miracle occur as the horses responded lovingly to Rowan - and he to them. Could his affinity with the animals save him from his condition? The Isaacsons were moved to leave their home and travel to the plains of Mongolia, the spiritual home of the horse, and the realm of shamanic healers, mountain people and herds of reindeer, risking everything on an arduous epic horseback journey in search of a cure for Rowan and the rescue of their family. Miraculously, Rowan did find a road to recovery, helped by the combined healing powers of horses, and an old Mongolian shaman.
