> - Haji Ali, Korphe Village Chief, Karakoram mountains, Pakistan.
> : In 1993, after a terrifying and disastrous attempt to climb K2, a
> mountaineer called Greg Mortenson drifted, cold and dehydrated, into
> an impoverished Pakistan village in the Karakoram Mountains. Moved by
> the inhabitants' kindness, he promised to return and build a school.
> "Three Cups of Tea" is the story of that promise and its extraordinary
> outcome. Over the next decade Mortenson built not just one but
> fifty-five schools - especially for girls - in remote villages across
> the forbidding and breathtaking landscape of Pakistan and Afghanistan,
> just as the Taliban rose to power. His story is at once a riveting
> adventure and a testament to the power of the humanitarian spirit.
