"The Horse Boy" by Ruper Isaacson

Amazing Journey (30 stars)
The Horse Boy by Ruper Isaacson is the story of Rowan, a special needs child, and his father, Rupert.  Rowan forms a friendship with a testy horse named Betsy.  Rupert sees this and gets the idea to take Rowan to Outer Mongolia to attempt to be cured by the Shamans and what a journey it is!  You will fall in love with Rowan and admire Rupert who will do anything to find a cure for his son.  You will be tempted to skip some pages because at times it moves slow, but stick with it.  It has a happy ending.  I enjoyed this book and hope you do too.

  1. I love horse stories! You've tagged it non-fiction so it's based on a true story. Is it YA or adult? I'd love to give this one a read.
