Eunice, January 1, 2011 (view all comments by Eunice)
Yes, this book is a couple of years old, but I just read it and...wow. A call to action. A major change made by an "ordinary" guy that not only encourages others to act, but demands it. I couldn't put it down and now have a clearer understanding of the problems facing isolated people in the middle east. We can help these people even while we can't do a whole lot to change the direction in which our own country is headed. Bravo, Greg Mortenson, for your love and tenacity.
