Spring/Summer '09 Reading Group List
“Greg Mortenson's story and his work in establishing schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan show the power of a passion to make a difference, particularly in the lives of women living in abject poverty with no previous access to education. A great book to remind us that we, as Americans, take many things for granted.”
— Cathy Berner, Blue Willow Bookshop, Houston, TX
For use in schools and libraries only. The story of Greg Mortenson, a homeless mountaineer who, following a 1993 climb of the treacherous K2, was inspired by a chance encounter with impoverished mountain villagers.
