Review

Greg Mortensons dangerous and difficult quest . . . is not only a thrilling read, its proof that one ordinary person, with the right combination of character and determination, really can change the world. (Tom Brokaw) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Greg Mortenson is the co-founder of the non-profit organizations the Central Asia Institute and Pennies for Peace.

He survived an armed kidnapping, death threats and hate mail for helping Muslim children receive an education. While not overseas, Greg lives in Montana, USA, with his wife and two children.

David Oliver Relin is the co-author of Three Cups of Tea and he has worked as both an editor and a reporter. He lives in Oregon, USA.

Format: Paperback
If you encourage a child to read only one book this year, I strongly urge you to select this one.

Children need heroes who reach out to them and serve as life-long role models. Greg Mortenson is the kind of hero that any parent would be proud for her or his children to emulate. His work is aimed at helping children in poor countries (especially Pakistan and Afghanistan) get an education, his first encouraging financial support came from school children in the United States, and he has established a charitable giving program, Pennies for Peace, that children participate in. Did you know that a penny will buy a pencil (something few poor children have) in Pakistan and Afghanistan?

This book is a superb adaption and updating of the original volume by Sarah Thomson to appeal to those in about the 8-13 year-old group. She has added photographs, information, and a Q & A from Greg Mortenson's daughter, Amira, that make the book positively sing from a young person's perspective. The book also features a new foreword by Jane Goodall and some photographs of her with the Mortensons.

The adaptation keeps the drama and excitement of the original while slimming down the stories in ways that make them more iconic. At the same time, the perspective is shifted from adults thinking about children to how the children see and experience Mr. Mortenson's work.

Do you like to read heroic tales of overcoming daunting odds to achieve great things? Do you believe that we are past the age of heroes? If you answered yes to either question, you need to read Three Cups of Tea immediately!

Here's the overview of this book.

i was recommended this book by a friend. And I must say I am amazed and somewhat ashamed that I did not know of Greg Mortenson or the CAI until this book. What an amazing man and his wonderful family. how someone can be so selfless is beyond my comprehension. I am inspired to do better things with my life and give back some of what God has given me even if it is miniscule in comparison to this great man, InshaAllah!

Format: Paperback
My daughter isn't a strong reader, neither is she that interested in books, but I got her this for her reading challenge at school and she couldn't put it down. It's such an inspiring story about one man's adventure in some of the worlds most dangerous countries. And yet he discovers that we are basically them same, there are good and bad in all cultures and races. This book should be on the national reading list for children. It promotes peace and understanding, tolerance and kindess and delivers this in a wonderful, rich text that children can get along with.
It's a must read for 9+
