Greg Mortenson quotes Mother Teresa and lives by her devotion to help others, "What we are trying to do may be a drop in the ocean, but the ocean would be less because of the missing drop". Providing an education to kids and more importantly girls, in Afghanistan and Pakistan is Greg's way to enhance peace and provide people with a reason to live over die.

I thought the story was great. I have true admiration for a man that cherishes education and others as much as he does. It is an inspiring story of how everyone can help and the importance you play in a strangers life.

I understand this was the Young Reader's Edition, but I felt there was more to the story. It was a great go getter, you can do anything motivational story. However, in that there are trials and tribulations you must tend too. More on his hardships would be a bit more realistic for the story. Let the young reader's realize that even the best dreams may be difficult to attain, but with perserverance and dedication you can get there.. show more of his perserverance and what he had to overcome.
