Greg Mortenson, David Oliver Relin — Three Cups of Tea: One Man mission to Promote Peace… One School at a Time — Penguin Books, 2007, 349 pp. ISBN 978-014-303825-2
This book tells us about Greg Mortenson’s efforts to build schools in remote corners of Afghanistan and Pakistan, starting with how he fell in love with this country after having lost is way down the K2. Rescued by poor but generous villagers, Mortenson, deeply touched, set himself to help them in any way he could; finally to decide upon bringing education to these people, and especially to girls and women.
This book is a great lesson of humanity; an inspiring “fix the world” story.
