  • Please avoid spoilers!

From pg. 80 of THREE CUPS OF TEA - ONE MAN'S MISSION TO PROMOTE PEACE...ONE SCHOOL AT A TIME by Greg Mortenson & David Oliver Relin...

"Though this lunar rockscape in the western Karakoram has to be one of the most forbidding on Earth, Mortenson felt he had come home. The dusty murk along the depths of the gorge and the high-altitude sun brushing the tips of these granite towers felt more like his natural habitat than the pastel stucco bungalows of Berkeley."

Great teaser - I've got this book on my tbr pile, I'm planning on suggesting it for a book club read in one of my groups - I've heard great things about it.

Interesting words the author uses for describing a landscape. I look forward to reading your review on it. =)

I just recently read Three Cups of Tea. Loved it. It's inspiring while at the same time informative. I think I understand news from Pakistan and Afghanistan better having read this book.
