In 1993 Greg Mortenson tried to climb K2. On the way down he became lost in the mountains of Pakistan and stumbles into a poor village. The villager chief offers him three cups and tea and his villages nurse Mortenson back to health. Moved by their kindness, he promises to return and build a school for their children. Despite death threats, a kidnapping and more, Mortenson has built over sixty schools, especially for girls, in Pakistan and Afghanistan. This special ed. includes a new foreword by Jane Goodall, new illustrations, a glossary and a special interview with Mortenson's twelve-year-old daughter Amira
