Stones into Schools by Greg Mortensen is a real tribute to the people whose totally unselfish motives enabled them to surmount almost unbelievable obstacles in achieving their goal ... building schools for girls in the most remove and inaccessible parts of Pakistan and Afghanistan. A sequel to Mortenson's popular "Three Cups of Tea," it is equally riveting in its recounting of the complete dedication of those involved, whatever their country of origin or "tribe."
