Many thanks to the Christian Science Monitor for this inspiring story, and to PaulJC for Stumbling it.

Today, 13 years after Mortenson’s failure as a mountaineer on K2, his success as a humanitarian continues to grow. By the end of the book, he has made 27 trips to Pakistan, commuting halfway around the world with the casual air of a business traveler shuttling between Boston and New York. He has built 55 schools.
