Click for availability and more information Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, by Greg Mortenson
Greg Mortenson's latest book, Stones into Schools, continues the story of Mortenson's campaign to extend education to thousands of children living in the remote, mountainous regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan by building schools that he so compellingly wrote of in his first book, Three Cups of Tea. Clearly, he is deserving of his widely-admired humanitarianism and dedication to his belief that, through education, the young people in these areas will be able to shed notions of violence as a part of their lives and become productive and positive members of their communities. Yet, the reader can gain so much more from Stones into Schools. Mortenson's descriptions of the varied tribal groups as well the mountainous geography he traveled in these areas provide first-hand information that serves as a valuable education for all on the complexities of these parts of the world. This book is strongly recommended.
