Overview

La verdadera e increíble historia de un hombre y su campaña humanitaria en territorio talibán

En 1993, un montañero llamado Greg Mortenson regresaba de un intento fallido de alcanzar la cumbre del K2. Exhausto y desorientado, acabo desviándose del camino de descenso y alejándose de su grupo para vagar perdido por una de las zonas más desoladas del norte de Pakistán. Solo y sin comida, agua o una carpa bajo la que protegerse, se encontró de pronto en una pobre aldea pakistaní, donde le cuidaron hasta su recuperación. Antes de regresar a casa, Mortenson les prometió volver y construir una escuela. De aquella promesa nació una de las campañas humanitarias más increíbles de la historia: la misión de un hombre de luchar contra el extremismo y el terrorismo construyendo escuelas.

“Aquí [en Pakistán y Afganistán] bebemos tres tazas de té para hacer negocios; la primera eres un extraño, la segunda te conviertes en amigo y la tercera eres parte de la familia, y por la familia estamos preparados a hacer lo que sea —incluso a morir”. —Haji Ali, jefe del poblado Korphe, montañas Karakoram, Pakistán.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tres Tazas de té. La lucha de un hombre por promover la paz… escuela a escuela. (Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time) Mortenson, Greg & David Oliver Relin. tr. by Cristina Mbarichi Lumu. U.S.: Vintage Español: Random House. 2009. 412p. ISBN 978-0-307-47488-9. pap. $15. Some failures lead to phenomenal successes, and this American nurse’s unsuccessful attempt to climb K2, the world’s second tallest mountain, is one of them. Dangerously ill when he finished his climb in 1993, Mortenson was sheltered for seven weeks by the small Pakistani village of Korphe; in return, he promised to build the impoverished town’s first school, a project that grew into the Central Asia Institute, which has since constructed more than 50 schools across rural Pakistan and Afghanistan. Coauthor Relin recounts Mortenson’s efforts in fascinating detail. As the book moves into the post-9/11 world, Mortenson and Relin argue that the United States must fight Islamic extremism in the region through collaborative efforts to alleviate poverty and improve access to education, especially for girls. Captivating and suspenseful, with engrossing accounts of both hostilities and unlikely friendships, this book will win many readers’ hearts. [PW 1/9/06; starred]
