Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan

Building. Greg Mortenson’s follow-up to his inspirational best-selling Three Cups of Tea, is titled, Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This book builds on the last one, and conveys the huge impact that a single school can have on a community and a region. Along the way, readers are introduced to the lives of people who live different external lives from most Americans, but who share the same dreams for our children and our communities. The importance of the education of women in Afghanistan and Pakistan can’t be overstated, and Mortenson’s work and this description of it make the case clearly.
