Three Cups of Tea

I started reading Three Cups of Tea about 2 weeks ago but barely finished first 40 pages. This is the story of Greg Mortenson, an American, who grew up in Tanzania and now lives in northern Pakistan building schools for kids. It is a great story. He was trying to climb K2, the most feared and second highest mountain in the world and after failing to summit it he got lost on his way back and after help of some porters he reached a remote village called Korphe. People there took care of him and he wanted to do something back for them so he went and started building school for them. That is all I have gathered so far but an amazing story and very inspiring.
