The astonishing, uplifting story of a real-life Indiana Jones and his humanitarian campaign to use education to combat terrorism in the Taliban’s backyard
Anyone who despairs of the individual’s power to change lives has to read the story of Greg Mortenson, a homeless mountaineer who, following a 1993 climb of Pakistan’s treacherous K2, was inspired by a chance encounter with impoverished mountain villagers and promised to build them a school. Over the next decade he built fifty-five schools—especially for girls—that offer a balanced education in one of the most isolated and dangerous regions on earth. As it chronicles Mortenson’s quest, which has brought him into conflict with both enraged Islamists and uncomprehending Americans, Three Cups of Tea combines adventure with a celebration of the humanitarian spirit.

This is a spellbinding (love typical review words) story that would seem incredible, if it were fiction, which it is not.
This book is inspiring and may affect your view of the war on terror.
Truly inspirational and eye opening!
One in a million book, that guarantees that you will never be the same after reading.
This book is very boring for a summer reading book for school and I fall asleep after like every chapter I read I give the guy credit for what he did though
