Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time


Sometimes you need to take a break and read something inspirational. The top-rated Three Cups of Tea is such a book. After an unsuccessful attempt to climb K2, the world's second highest mountain, Greg Mortenson became gravely ill and was nursed for many weeks by the inhabitants of the impoverished Pakistani village of Korphe. To show his gratitude he vowed to build the first school in this poverty-stricken village. Mortenson discovered he had a heart for educating the Pakistani people, especially girls. The one school eventually turned into 50 schools across the wild, rugged, northern regions of Pakistan. He learned to deal with the tortuous political and religious forces to get things done.

The book title comes from a local Pakistani saying: The first time you share tea with a Balti, you are a stranger. The second time, you are an honored guest. The third time you become family.

Pick up this uplifting book today for your Valentine or for yourself.
