Three cups Of Tea, written by Greg Mortenson is New Yorks best sellar for the 109th week. Mr. Mortenson was on a mission to promote peace with many attempts to climb Pakistan's K2, the worlds second highest mountain, all in the pursuit to establish schools in some of the most destitute regions of Afghanistan and Pakinstan. His theory was to replace guns with pencils and promote peace with books and education. After many attempts to climb K2 he found him self wounded and ill running out of food and water. He stumbled into a village were he was nursed back to health by the kind people. He one day noticed that there were 84 children in the village and no teacher, the village was to poor to afford $1 a day teacher. When he left he promised the village people that he would return and build a school.
Greg Mortenson takes us on a remarkable Journey in this book, which sometimes became dangerous, but his drive and passion would not let him fail or give up. This book is beautifully written I highly recommend that everyone read it. It has wonderful photography, just an all over feel good book, 2 thumbs up
