One man's campaign to build schools in the most dangerous, remote, and anti-American reaches of Asia: in 1993 Greg Mortenson was an American mountain-climbing bum wandering emaciated and lost through Pakistan's Karakoram. After he was taken in and nursed back to health by the people of a Pakistani village, he promised to return one day and build them a school. From that rash, earnest promise grew one of the most incredible humanitarian campaigns of our time--Mortenson's one-man mission to counteract extremism by building schools, especially for girls, throughout the breeding ground of the Taliban. In a region where Americans are often feared and hated, he has survived kidnapping, death threats, and wrenching separations from his wife and children. But his success speaks for itself--at last count, his Central Asia Institute had built fifty-five schools.--From publisher description.… (més)

I rated this book 3 stars purely for its content--not great writing here. ( )

I ended up liking this a whole lot more than I expected. Definitely had some problems (a bit disjointed at times, some superfluous anecdotes and story lines) but I was so impressed with the subject of the book and all he's doing in the world that I could easily overlook the negative. I really didn't know much about Pakistan going into this and now feel that I have at least a slightly better grasp on the world, which is really the whole point of reading any type of non-fiction. I'm usually not won over so easily but I was ready to write Mortenson a check once i got to the end of the book. Highly recommended. ( )
  JustZelma | Dec 20, 2020 |
A reason I give this book two stars is because the prose is very slow at times. The book's content is pretty interesting, and the topic is timely and significant. This is the story of a man who carries out his promise to build a school for children in a small mountain village in Pakistan. One of the things I found particularly moving is the fact that he got threats and negative mail from Americans of all people. If nothing else, Mortenson's philosophy of promoting peace through education may well be the best possible way to fight terrorism in our time. It really is in our interest to promote education and peace. Why anyone would oppose this is something that will always puzzle me. The book reads a bit like an adventure tale and a bit like a travelogue. I think most people will enjoy it overall. And I think more people should be reading it because the book does provide an excellent look and overview at the regions of Central Asia, a place that very few people understand or appreciate. So, I do recommend it, just keep in mind it may be a bit slow to read at times.

(On an update note, after the various allegations about Mortenson and him taking money from his foundation, or at least misusing funds, came out, I am seriously disappointed to say the least. I guess my perception of him has changed, so I would have reservations over recommending this book to anyone). ( )

Damn inspiring. Can you do a more meaningful thing? One gripe is that the writing has a stutter step to it... ( )

This is a wonderful book that gives the reader an unprecedented and very personal insight into a people that I had no knowledge of before reading it.
afegit per mikeg2 | editaWaterBridge Reviews, Alma Lee (Mar 20, 2007)
 
Captivating and suspenseful, with engrossing accounts of both hostilities and unlikely friendships, this book will win many readers' hearts.
afegit per Shortride | editaPublishers Weekly
 
"The story of how this happened is a cliffhanger as well as an first-hand introduction to the people and places of a region little understood by most Americans. The subtitle, "One Man's Mission to Fight Terrorism and Build Nations . . . One School at a Time," underscores the motivation behind his work."
afegit per cvosshans | editaBookBrowse, Washington Times - Ann Geracimos
 
"Answering by delivering what his country will not, Mortenson is "fighting the war on terror the way I think it should be conducted," Relin writes. This inspiring, adventure-filled book makes that case admirably."

The little red light had been flashing for five minutes before Bhangoo paid it any attention. "The fuel gages on these old aircraft are notoriously unreliable," Brigadier General Bhangoo, one of Pakistan's most experienced high-altitude pilots, said, tapping. I wasn't sure if that was meant to make me feel better.

The only way we can defeat terrorism is if people in this country where terrorists exist learn to respect and love Americans...and if we can respect and love these people here. What's the difference between them becoming a productive local citizen or a terrorist? I think the key is education.
Your President Bush has done a wonderful job of uniting one billion Muslims against America for the next two hundred years. (Pakastani Brigadier General Bashir Baz)
Osama, baah!...The enemy is ignorance. The only way to defeat it is to build relationships with these people, to draw them into the modern world with education and business. Otherwise the fight will go on forever. (Pakastani Brigadier General Bashir Baz)
