“Greg Mortenson's story and his work in establishing schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan show the power of a passion to make a difference, particularly in the lives of women living in abject poverty with no previous access to education. A great book to remind us that we, as Americans, take many things for granted.”
— Cathy Berner, Blue Willow Bookshop, Houston, TX

Description


The astonishing, uplifting story of a real-life Indiana Jones and his humanitarian campaign to use education to combat terrorism in the Talibans backyard. Anyone who despairs of the individuals power to change lives has to read the story of Greg Mortenson, a homeless mountaineer who, following a 1993 climb of Pakistans treacherous K2, was inspired by a chance encounter with impoverished mountain villagers and promised to build them a school. Over the next decade he built fifty-five schoolsespecially for girlsthat offer a balanced education in one of the most isolated and dangerous regions on earth. As it chronicles Mortensons quest, which has brought him into conflict with both enraged Islamists and uncomprehending Americans, Three Cups of Tea combines adventure with a celebration of the humanitarian spirit.
