From the author of the #1 bestseller Three Cups of Tea, the continuing story of this determined humanitarian's efforts to promote peace through education. 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. 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.

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.

Greg Mortenson sa cosa vuol dire stare dalla parte dei bambini. Fin da quando, un giorno del 1993, in un villaggio nelle montagne tra Pakistan e Afghanistan, ha visto una ragazzina che, seduta per terra, imparava a scrivere sulla sabbia, armata di un rametto: era la piccola Chocho, cui Greg promise solennemente di tornare, un giorno, per costruire una scuola vera, con banchi, lavagne, matite. Oggi, dopo che di scuole ne ha costruite oltre cento e ha raccontato la storia straordinaria di quella promessa in "Tre tazze di tè", Mortenson torna a scrivere di quei due Paesi che sembravano perduti, e delle bambine e bambini che ha aiutato a riscattarsi e rinascere.

Nel 1993, lo scalatore americano Greg Mortenson, dopo un tentativo fallito di raggiungere la vetta del K2 e una difficile discesa che mette a repentaglio la sua vita, giunge nello sperduto villaggio di Korphe, nel Karakorum pakistano. Gli abitanti lo curano per sette settimane, e per sdebitarsi Greg promette loro che tornerà a costruire una scuola. "Tre tazze di tè" è la storia di quella promessa, delle difficoltà incontrate per mantenerla - in California, Greg rinuncia alla casa e vive in macchina per non sprecare i soldi dell'affitto - e della spettacolare riuscita dell'impresa: in una dozzina di anni Mortenson ha costruito non una ma cinquantacinque scuole, ha promosso in particolare l'istruzione delle bambine, da sempre escluse, e ha portato avanti la sua opera nelle zone dominate dai Talebani, anche dopo l'11 settembre e le guerre che hanno insanguinato una terra già martoriata.
