More than one path to future — saner way of life

Anyone who despairs of the individual’s power to change lives has to read the story of Greg Mortenson, a homeless mountaineer who, following a 1993 climb of Pakistan’s treacherous K2, was inspired by a chance encounter with impoverished mountain villagers and promised to build them a school. Over the next decade he built fifty-five schools—especially for girls—that offer a balanced education in one of the most isolated and dangerous regions on earth. As it chronicles Mortenson’s quest, which has brought him into conflict with both enraged Islamists and uncomprehending Americans, Three Cups of Tea combines adventure with a celebration of the humanitarian spirit.

I taught this book (which is the Young Readers' Edition) to my freshmen last year. The book includes a glossary and study questions. I was surprised by how little my students knew about 9/11. I am aware of the "scandal" surrounding Mortenson's story, but I found the message of the book meaningful and worth teaching students. ( )

What a pleasure to go along on Greg Mortenson's adventures to places in the world few westerners see, much less experience as part of the family. Greg is doing powerfully good work in some of the poorest, hardest-to-reach places on the planet, and he is well-loved there for his selfless and often dangerous work. Although it's a true story, it reads like a novel with plenty of high adventure. ( )

I loved it when I read it, and then Krakauer blew Mortenson out of the water. So NOPE ( )

In her pared-down version, Sarah Thomson has kept the pacing and the cast of characters intact, but flat renditions of events like Mortenson’s armed kidnapping, just weeks before the birth of his daughter, fail to capture the power of the original.
