Description

Greg Mortenson talked about the book he wrote with David Oliver Relin, Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace. . . One School at a Time (Penguin; January 30, 2007). Among other topics, he talked about his life, his family, and former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, and he recounted stories from the book. Three Cups of Tea is the story of Mr. Mortenson's work in Afghanistan and Pakistan to establish schools. The idea for the schools stemmed from Mr. Mortenson's unsuccessful attempt in 1993 to climb the world's second highest mountain called K2 in Pakistan. Lost and sick, he ended up in the village of Korphe where the people took care of him for seven weeks. Mr. Mortenson promised to return to the village and start a school there. He continues to build schools in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other areas of central Asia. He is also the co-founder of Pennies for Peace, where American students pool their pennies to help Afghan and Pakistani children to buy school supplies.
