Amazing story!

This story is so inspirational! It is fantastic also to hear it read by the father who wrote it, I watched the documentary film afterwards but it was nowhere near as good as the book. Too much was cut out - however it was interesting to compare the two. I would definitely recommend this amazing journey, and adventure and story of endurance. Loved it!

Love and Dedication

I was overwhelmed by sheer scale of the task that Rupert Issacson and his dear wife set them selfs, their selflesness was quite extraordinary the journey they undertook was a crusade that Ruperts faith would better his sons quality of life was unshakable.
I don't want to say any more as it would only spoil the book, I was almost in tears at various parts and would recommend this as a must read.

Fantastic

An honest and reflective insight to a journey of discovery for an autistic child and his parents in the mountains of Mongolia. I feel like I was there with them on the venture and look forward to hearing more. Great narration and performance.

An amazing listen 😊

I didn't want this book to end...It is an incredible story of hope, heart break and happiness.
For those with an interest in autism, this book is so interesting and thought provoking.
For those with little or no knowledge of autism, you will be utterly amazed at the struggle and perseverance of one family's bid to help their son.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
