Three Cups of tea by Greg Mortenson & David Oliver Relin

This book is about Greg Mortenson who tried to climb K2, the world's second highest mountain, to honor his younger sister who died; but when one of his group members got sick, they turned around and Greg got lost in Pakistan. He wandered into a poor village and after seeing their circumstances, he was determined to build a school. He decided if the first one was successful he would start building more. I really liked this book because Greg helped the kids get an education and supplies. The only thing I don't like is that he was kind of selfish to his family. He was away from his wife and children for a long period of time which not really fair to them. I understand how he wanted to help kids get education but his family should come first. Even when he was at home, he was always working so they didn't get time with him.
