Mortenson turned into a humanitarian from being a registered nurse and then a mountain-climber. He resolved to reduce poverty and promote education for girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan. He even founded the Central Asia Institute, which supervised the building of more than 171 schools according to its 2010 report. In this book, Mortenson asserts that poverty in places like Pakistan and Afghanistan can be eradicated by educating the masses, especially women. This title is compiled by David Oliver Relin as a journalist interviewing and observing Mortenson and his work. The book remained on The New York Times nonfiction bestseller list for four years.
