It’s a Book…”Three Cups of Tea”.

Project 52 ~ Week 36
Theme for this week’s challenge “It’s a Book.”

I really enjoyed creating this image and it placed in the top ten this week!  The book “Three Cups of Tea” by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relln. This book is about one man’s mission to promote Peace . . . one school at a time.

This book tells the story of an American man, Greg Mortenson who has devoted his life to building schools in the remotest mountains of Pakistan. After he failed an attempt to scale the earth’s second highest peak, K2, he stumbles into an isolated mountain village. Here he resolves to repay the generosity of the village leader and his people by building them a school. Mortenson’s struggle to fulfill that promise and then committing himself to fund raising and building many more schools, for both boys and girls in this Muslim country, is the central subject of this long, well detailed book.

This book has been on my list of books to read this year and now that I created this image perhaps I’ll get down to reading it. Have any of you read it? Your thoughts?

I love this collection because they are all little things I kept from my victorian tea party bridal shower 11 years ago!  I keep them in my class kitchen cabinet for display and so enjoy bringing them out for tea or just pure enjoyment like photography!
