Endgame Fundamentals: White to Play and Draw

This month's carnival is being run by LEP who has one of the more fun chess blogs to follow. Here is a short but hopefully instructive post.

Here is an example from the old school book " How to Win in the Chess Endings" by I.A.Horowitz. If you were to point me to this position and told me White to move draws I wouldn't believe you. As the arrows implies, once White takes the rook (forced), black pawn is on his fourth square looking like he can Queen easily.

I'll leave it to you to work out the draw from here
