Description: This plain language story, by a senior clinician-scientist, Phillip Peterson, looks at how horses can play a role in the healing of people with chronic fatigue syndrome. Dr. Peterson's unique perspective on this challenging condition and his passion for communicating to an audience that includes patients and their families, as well as his peers, is reflected in this article. This piece is an example of a genre called creative nonfiction, described by Lee Gutkind, as a "story...that serves to communicate information and to make a point."(http://www.leegutkind.com/cnf_genre.html)
