The Horse Boy Audio Giveaway...

The Horse Boy (9cds Read by the Author Audio)
9780316008235_154X233
When his son Rowan was diagnosed with autism, Rupert Isaacson was devastated, afraid he might never be able to communicate with his child. But when Isaacson, a lifelong horseman, rode their neighbor's horse with Rowan, Rowan improved immeasurably. He was struck with a crazy idea: why not take Rowan to Mongolia, the one place in the world where horses and shamanic healing intersected?

The Horse Boy
is the dramatic and heartwarming story of that impossible adventure. In Mongolia, the family found undreamed of landscapes and people, unbearable setbacks, and advances beyond their wildest dreams. This is a deeply moving, truly one-of-a-kind story--of a family willing to go to the ends of the earth to help their son, and of a boy learning to connect with the world for the first time.

My husband loves audio books, he listens to them in the car to and from work. I rarely have enough non-child filled time for that, so it would totally be for him. But, in general I am the book person. I like to read them in bed. Great new site!

I would really like to read this story. I have read several books on autism and am afraid my son is on the autistic scale. A happy/successful story would be good about now.
