After reading Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time
last year, I was super excited to read Stones into School. What had happened since the publication of his last book?
One of the main things I liked about this book was the fact that it was written by Greg himself. It made this one more special and personal.
I also enjoyed learning about how he has grown personally and adjusted to how CAI has matured into the larger entity it is today. The detailed stories of his newest staff members - their journeys and accomplishments are humorous and heartfelt. I don't know how he managed to do it but he found people as passionate and devoted to the cause of girl's education as he is himself.
Other special highlights include the incredible tale of building of a school in the most remote parts of Afghanistan, learning about the devastation caused by the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan, and Greg's change of mind about the US military and their role in the countries.
If you liked Three Cups of Tea, you will be sure to love Stones into Schools. It will make you both laugh and cry.
Greg Mortenson is a man who truly makes a difference. His story needs to be told so more people can become of aware of what he is doing and help his cause.
