Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace, One School at a Time Young Readers Edition (Paperback)
Based on the New York Times bestseller, this adaptation of Stones into Schools tells the story of a remarkable humanitarian campaign to build schools, empower communities, and educate girls and boys. Picking up where Three Cups of Tea left off, Stones into Schools tells the story of Greg Mortenson's work with the Central Asia Institute building schools and relationships in the secluded northeast corner of Afghanistan. This adaptation includes a special foreword by Angelina Jolie, who is a champion of Mortenson's work, and an introduction by former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, and many new never-before-seen color photos, as well as a glossary and a new afterword by Khyber Mortenson, Greg Mortenson's young son.
