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, 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.… (mais)

Incredibly inspiring. I know I talk about it too much. ( )
  dkornf | Mar 29, 2024 |
I knew there was some controversy about this book - I decided to read most of it before I looked it up. It’s a story about perseverance and cultural exchange that’s fun to read and hopeful at its best but it does seem idealized and too good to be true. David Oliver Relin was a journalist who interviewed and spent time with Greg Mortensen and did a lot of follow up interviews with colleagues and participants in both the states and Pakistan. He says himself in his intro that he was swept up in Mortensen’s orbit and didn’t write a standard journalistic account. He was inspired and pulling for Mortensen’s success. He crafted a beautiful story that became a bestseller. Later Mortensen was accused of using donated money to promote the book and maybe some other misappropriations. There was an expose on 60 Minutes. Relin fell into depression and ended up committing suicide. Knowing this, the story becomes very sad. Good intentions by both men gone off track. ( )

White savior complex runs deep in this book. IMO skip it. ( )

I’m afraid I made no notes on this book when I read it years ago but I very clearly remember thoroughly enjoying it. ( )
  BBrookes | Nov 29, 2023 |
Read this years ago, a little late on my reviewing a book I now look at a bit differently. ( )

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.

Captivating and suspenseful, with engrossing accounts of both hostilities and unlikely friendships, this book will win many readers' hearts.
adicionado por Shortride | editarPublishers 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."
adicionado por cvosshans | editarBookBrowse, 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)
