Listen to the Wind: The Story of Dr. Greg and Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson
Listen to the Wind tells the story of Greg Mortenson told from the perspective of the Pakistani children he met. In 1993 Mortenson found himself lost and ill in his attempt to climb the mountain K2. Villagers from the small Pakistani village of Korphe rescue Mortenson and nursed him back to health. He wonders how he could ever repay their kindness. A village elder advises him to “listen to the wind.”
