About the Author

Rupert Isaacson was born in London in 1967 to Southern African parents. He currently lives in Austin, Texas. His books include The Healing Land, which chronicles his time spent living with the San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert and his adventure helping them to win back their lost hunting grounds; The Wild Host, the History and Meaning of the Hunt; and The Horse Boy, which tells the story of his quest on horseback across Mongolia to find healing for his autistic son Rowan. The Horse Boy was translated into 30 languages.


There is enough here to suggest that something - be it the power of mind, ritual or maybe magic itself - can help bring an autistic child from near total darkness out into the world * Daily Mail *
It is probably only once in a critical lifetime that one will be moved almost to tears ... a triumph of the human spirit * Telegraph (on 'The Horse Boy') *
Magical, miraculous, uplifting * Daily Mail (on 'The Horse Boy') *
Amazing, astonishing * Sunday Times (on 'The Horse Boy') *
