A little advance notice for a treat of a book for September.
The book to read for September is called "Three Cups of Tea" by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. It is suppose to be AMAZING.
"Thrilling....and proof that one ordinary person, with the right combination of character and determination, can really can change the world.".....Tom Brokaw.
The book is about a mountaineer who drifted into an impoverished Pakistan village after a failed attempt to climb K2. Moved by the inhabitants kindness, he swears that he is going to come back and build a school. He ends up building 55 schools for girls....in the forbidden terrain that gave birth to the Taliban. His story is at once a riveting adventure and a testament to the power of the humanitarian spirit!
Inspirational, motivational.....makes you think "what can I do to help change the world!!!!"
All my best to you all!
