From his home in Texas to the wilds of Mongolia, we follow the Isaacson family on an epic journey on horseback - a journey that would test their love, challenge their beliefs and change their lives.
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!

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.

Did not know quite what to expect when I bought this book. As a horse lover, the title was enough to make me buy it to try.
Well read by the author it is a journey of hope and discovery.
It has taught me a great deal I did not know about the problems of having an autistic member of a family.
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.
loved this book when I read it in paper version and with Rupert narrating.Want to find the sequel on audio
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.
A wonderful, insightful, beautiful family journey and extremely interesting. A real pleasure to listen to and makes you really contemplate it after each listen. I'll never forget it.
