There is a book store label on the back. ; Over the past 16 years Greg Mortenson, through his nonprofit Central Asia Institute (CAI) has worked to promote peace through education by establishing more than 130 schools, most for girls, in remote regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan. This was told in his bestselling book Three Cups of Tea. This book also begins as that one did - with a promist. In 1999, Kirghiz horsemen from Afghanistan's Wakhan Corridor rode into Pakistan and secured a promise from the author to construct a school in an isolated pocket of the Pamir Mountains known as Bozai Gumbaz. He could not build it before constructing many others, and that is the story he tells in this dramatic new book. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 420 pages
