Stones Into Schools
Stones Into Schools Promoting Peace With Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan By Mortenson, Greg Book - 2009

This is the continuation of a remarkable and inspiring story of how one man's promise to build a school in the remote mountains of Pakistan snowballs into an educational odyssey that crosses borders and spans decades. Stones into schools picks up where three cups of tea left off and tells the story of Greg and his amazing colleagues as they build schools for girls throughout Afghanistan, in the heart of Taliban country. It took me a minute to get used to the change in style as the last book wasn't written by Greg but I ended up enjoying that this one was written in the first person. I loved this book and was truly touched by the tenacity, perseverance and dedication of people in a war torn nation to educate their children and especially their young women. It's amazing what can be accomplished when we follow our hearts and work together. Definitely worth the read.
