Críticas:

"Isaacson charts his son's progress and regressions with an endearing tenderness.... Readers also follow the rare moments when Rowan expresses affection for his father, who is honest and humble throughout. And the author's chatty and self-deprecating storytelling adds a welcome buoyancy to a weighty experience. Meanwhile, Mongolia makes a fetching backdrop for this father/son love story.... Rooting for Rowan through all this... makes "The Horse Boy" an unexpected page turner." -- The Cleveland Plain Dealer

Reseña del editor:

Rupert Isaacson's "The Horse Boy" is one family's epic journey to rescue their son. Rupert and Kirstin Isaacson were heartbroken when they learned that their two-year-old son Rowan was autistic. And with each passing day, Rowan's growing isolation, his uncontrollable fits, each failed treatment, filled them with despair. Then one day Rowan escaped and ran into a field of horses. Rupert watched in horror - but saw a miracle occur. The horses responded lovingly to Rowan - and he to them. Could Rowan's affinity with these animals save their son from his condition? The Isaacsons left their home in Texas and travelled to the plains and mountains of Mongolia - the spiritual home of the horse - risking everything - their happiness, future and sanity - on an arduous epic horseback journey in search of a cure for Rowan..."An elegant, affecting narrative ...a triumph of the human spirit". ("Daily Telegraph"). "Captivating, incredible, a magical journey, an impossible dream". ("Telegraph Weekend"). "It is probably only once in a critical lifetime that one will be moved almost to tears by [such] an account ...the excellence of his writing [creates an] elegant, affecting narrative ...a triumph of the human spirit". ("Telegraph"). "Magical, miraculous, uplifting". ("Daily Mail"). Rupert Isaacson is British but lives with his family in Texas, USA. He is an ex-professional horse trainer and founding director of the Indigenous Land Rights Fund. He is the author of "The Healing Land: A Kalahari Journey" and his journalism and travel writing has appeared in the "Daily Telegraph", "Esquire", "National Geographic", "Independent on Sunday", "Conde Nast Traveller", "Daily Mail" and "The Field".
