Books :: The Horse Boy

the-horse-boy

Well now that my season has wrapped I hope to pick up my reading again which has been seriously lacking all summer. I find that by the time I head to bed I get about three pages into a book and then nod off! My Pinterest “Books to Read” board beckons and I hope that with so much time spent nursing in the next few months I will choose to read instead of surf on my phone….time will tell!

I finished “The Horse Boy” earlier this fall which is an absorbing book about a boy with severe autism whose family takes a trip to Mongolia in order to take part in Shamanistic healing rituals for him. They made a documentary about the trip which I haven’t seen but would like to. The book is one part about autism and one part about a family’s journey to acceptance and healing – pretty incredible story. I would recommend it!
