Blogging A-Z Challenge 2017, memoir

Blogging from A-Z Challenge – T

I’m taking part in the Blogging From A-Z Challenge April 2017 with the theme of books. I’ll be blogging about the books on my Goodreads shelf that I’ve read or want to read.

T

Today’s letter is T and the book I’ve chosen is Three cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson & David Oliver Relin. I really enjoyed this memoir and really do recommend it if you enjoy uplifting stories about people who want to change the world.

Here’s the Goodreads blurb:

14625149“The astonishing, uplifting story of a real-life Indiana Jones and his humanitarian campaign to use education to combat terrorism in the Taliban’s backyard.

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.”

What do you think of my choice for the letter T?

What would you have chosen?
