9780141034263: Three Cups Of Tea

'Here we drink three cups of tea to do business; the first you are a stranger, the second you become a friend, and the third, you join our family, and for our family we are prepared to do anything - even die' - Haji Ali, Korphe Village Chief, Karakoram mountains, Pakistan. In 1993, after a terrifying and disastrous attempt to climb K2, a mountaineer called Greg Mortenson drifted, cold and dehydrated, into an impoverished Pakistan village in the Karakoram Mountains. Moved by the inhabitants' kindness, he promised to return and build a school. "Three Cups of Tea" is the story of that promise and its extraordinary outcome. Over the next decade Mortenson built not just one but fifty-five schools - especially for girls - in remote villages across the forbidding and breathtaking landscape of Pakistan and Afghanistan, just as the Taliban rose to power. His story is at once a riveting adventure and a testament to the power of the humanitarian spirit.

Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission To Promote Peace . . . One School At a Time

Review:

An inspiring chronicle . . . this is one protagonist who clearly deserves to be called a hero. ("People")

Mortenson's mission is admirable, his conviction unassailable, his territory exotic. ("The Washington Post")

Greg Mortenson's dangerous and difficult quest . . . is not only a thrilling read, it's proof that one ordinary person, with the right combination of character and determination, really can change the world. (Tom Brokaw)

Mortensons mission is admirable, his conviction unassailable, his territory exotic. ("The Washington Post")
