Three Cups of Tea

Just finished this book about a month ago. It hasn’t left my consciousness.
Greg Mortenson (a local guy in the Bay Area) tries to summit Everest and fails. The guy who helps him nurse back to health was awesome. Greg feels a bond of debt and promises to help this guy’s village. They need a school. So what starts him out is this absolute failure that causes him to not only build a school there bridges and many, many schools.
The book oozes passion for the projects that follow, and love for the people who are so unlike him.
