...In Afghanistan and Pakistan

Author:
Greg Mortenson (with foreword by Khaled Hosseini); Format: Hardcover; ISBN: 9780670021154; Publisher: Viking; Release Date: 2009; List Price: $26.95; Length: 420 pages. Condition: Like New. Dust jacket and cover both still look excellent, binding is strong, and pages are unmarked. Looks beautiful! Same cover design as that shown here.

Synopsis:

In this dramatic first-person narrative, Greg Mortenson picks up where Three Cups of Tea left off in 2003, recounting his relentless, ongoing efforts to establish schools for girls in Afghanistan; his extensive work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after a massive earthquake hit the region in 2005; and 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, as well as touching on military matters, Islam, and women--all woven together with the many rich personal stories of the people who have been involved in this remarkable two-decade humanitarian effort. Since the 2006 publication of Three Cups of Tea, Mortenson has traveled across the U.S. and the world to share his vision with hundreds of thousands of people. He has met with heads of state, top military officials, and leading politicians who all seek his advice and insight. The continued phenomenal success of Three Cups of Tea proves that there is an eager and committed audience for Mortenson's work and message. This book is an inspiration...and a call to action.
