Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Fight Terrorism and Build Nations-- One School at a Time
In 1993, following a failed attempt to ascend K2, Greg Mortenson was inspired by a chance encounter with impoverished mountain villagers in Pakistan and promised to build them a school. From that rash, earnest promise grew one of the most incredible humanitarian campaigns of our time--Mortenson's one-man mission to counteract extremism by building schools, especially for girls, throughout the breeding ground of the Taliban.
Award-winning journalist David Oliver Relin has collaborated on this spellbinding account of Mortenson's incredible accomplishments in a region where Americans are often feared and hated. Over the following decade Mortenson built not just one but fifty-five schools. Three Cups of Tea is at once an unforgettable adventure and the inspiring story of how one man really is changing the world--one school at a time.Make this your next book club selection and everyone saves.

Such an inspiring book! What a difference one person can make...amazing. Gives the reader another perspective on Pakistan and Afghanistan and makes us question our preconceived ideas or stereotypes about Islam. Can't wait to read the next book! レビュー全文を読む
