Through his new book, Stones into schools, Greg Mortenson, the author of the #1 bestseller Three Cups of Tea, continuously shows his determined humanitarian's efforts to promote peace through education. It is a wonderful and a dramatic first-person narrative in which Greg starts off from where Three Cups of Tea left off in 2003. In this wonderful abstract, Greg describes his persistent and ongoing efforts to establish schools for girls in Afghanistan. He recounts his hard work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after the region was hit by a massive earthquake in 2005.
A former mountaineer and military veteran, Greg Mortenson, in his pursuit of promoting peace through education, builds relationships with Islamic clerics, militia commanders, and tribal leaders even as he dodges shootouts with feuding Afghan warlords and survives an eight-day armed abduction by the Taliban.
Along with the vision to promote peace through education and literacy, the author throws light on military matters, Islam, and women together with many rich personal stories of the people who have been involved in this remarkable two-decade humanitarian effort. This book is a true inspiration and a call to action
