The Horse Boy

My friend Regina recommended this book and I'm so glad she did. It was amazing what this dad was determined to do to heal his son. Rowan suffers from severe autism. The only times he seemed to come out of it were when he was near horses and one time when he met with a shaman. With this in mind, his father decides to take him to Mongolia where they will ride horses deep into Siberia to meet with shamens.

Their tale is filled with humor, trials, mytical events, and lots of poop. It had me cheering.

This sounds like a very touching book. I imagine it couldn't have been easy for the family.
