Roxana Robinson’s latest novel, Sparta, is about a Marine lieutenant coming home from Iraq. To write that novel, Robinson talked to many veterans, and began to understand how complicated it is for them to really come home.  And now she's learned how an unusual therapy can ease that re-entry.

The sound of the veteran working with a horse came from the video below, which is part of a documentary in progress.
