Heart-breaking, uplifting, and full of adventure, this 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 were gone. But a year almost to the day since Rowan's improvement he started regressing: the accidents and tantrums reappeared. Something had to be done. Father and son embarked on a new quest, journeying from the bushmen of Namibia to the coastal rainforest of Queensland, Australia, and finally to the Navajo reservations of the American southwest, where Rowan was transformed.

Absolutely fascinating. I very much appreciate the author's open-minded approach to life and his son and all both entail, but also how honest he is about his own short-comings.
