Night Table: Three Cups of Tea
Three Cups of Tea (G&M and NYT Best Seller)
by Greg Mortenson
Here is a heroic tale of a man who turns a harrowing failed K2 climb into a mission of hope.
Mortenson became lost and near death on his 1993 climb of K2 and was brought back to health by Pakistani villagers. In gratitude for their help, he promised to build a school in their village. This grew into a project to establish schools throughout the hostile environs of Pakistan and Afghanistan, despite numerous challenges and lack of external support.
