Follows a Texas couple and their autistic son as they trek on horseback through Outer Mongolia in an attempt to find healing for their son. When two-year-old Rowan was diagnosed with autism, Rupert Isaacson, a writer and former horse trainer, and his wife Kristin Neff, a psychology professor, sought the best possible medical care for their son-but traditional therapies had little effect. Then they discovered that Rowan has a profound affinity for animals-particularly horses-and the family set off on a quest that would change their lives forever.
