Amazon Editorial Review

Starting where his bestselling 2006 book, Three Cups of Tea, left off, Greg Mortenson continues the story of his humanitarian efforts in Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Beginning in Pakistan, in 1999, Mortenson promises a group of Afghani Kirghiz horsemen that he will construct a school in the Pamir Mountains - work that was later interrupted by a 2005 earthquake in Pakistan. Despite delays and setbacks, Mortenson's organization, the CAI, successfully manages to establish its first schools for girls in Afghanistan, in the heart of Taliban country while working with the US military on plans for lasting peace.
