Description
Greg Mortenson picks up where Three Cups of Tea left off in 2003 with the dramatic story of his ongoing humanitarian efforts in the Middle East. Mortenson recounts his relentless labors to establish schools for girls in Afghanistan and describes his extensive work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after a massive earthquake hit the region in 2005. He tells of the unique ways he has built relationships with Islamic clerics, militia commanders, and tribal leaders, even as he was dodging shootouts with feuding Afghan warlords and surviving an eight-day armed abduction by the Taliban. He shares for the first time his broader vision to promote peace through education and literacy, while touching on military matters, Islam, and women. He weaves it all together with many rich stories of the people who have been involved in his remarkable two decades of work.
