Three Cups of Tea – Sarah L. Thomson, David Oliver Relin and Greg Mortenson
On the afternoon of September 2, 1993, Greg Mortenson realized that he had failed in his attempt to climb K2, the world’s second-highest mountain.
But disappointment was the least of his problems. Emaciated, exhausted, thoroughly disoriented, and suffering from edema, his grip on life was loosening.
He was taken in and nursed back to health by the impoverished populace of a remote Pakistani village.
Grateful, he promised to return someday to build them a school. Three Cups of Tea is the story of that promise and the story of how one man changed the world, one school at a time.
