Synopsis

Heart-breaking, uplifting and full of adventure, The Long Ride Home is the long-awaited sequel to the international bestseller The Horse Boy.



Rowan came back from the shamans in Mongolia a changed boy. The three most debilitating effects of his autism - his incontinence, his endless tantruming, and his inability to make friends - were gone.



But a year almost to the day since Rowan's improvement he started regressing: the accidents and tantrums reappeared, terrifying his father Rupert. Something had to be done.



Father and son embarked on a new quest, journeying from the bushmen of Namibia to the coastal rainforests of Queensland, Australia and finally to the Navajo reservations of the American southwest, where Rowan was transformed - they had begun the Long Ride Home.

Customer Reviews

This is an outstanding story of courage, of love in its highest form (Agape), of endurance. The incredible struggle of dedicated parents to seek every possible means to improve the condition of their autisitc child, travelling the world to find healers. Even though both parents are rationalists, they do not hesitate to go off the beaten track to find healing for their son. And healing they do find in Botswana, amongst the native American Indians, in Indonesia. I can't possibly do justice to this exceptional story in a few lines. If you read nothing else this year, you must read this one
