od JohnMH (Publikoval uživatel WorldCat 2006-09-13) Skvělé Trvalý odkaz
A failed attempt to climb K2 and a desire to pay tribute to his younger sister who died at a far too early age, led Mortenson on an odyssey to build schools for girls in the most rural and poverty-stricken areas of the Himalaya.

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, fatwas issued by enraged mullahs, 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."@en ;
