December 27 Birthday: Greg Mortenson

Greg Mortenson, humanitarian
December 27, 1957

Listen to the Wind: The Story of Dr. Greg & Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and Susan L. Roth, illustrated by Susan L. Roth (Dial Books for Young Readers, 2009)

An advocate for education, Greg Mortenson made a promise to Korphe, a Pakistan village that took him in when he was ill—he would return to build a school. And he did. This is the story of that remarkable feat.

Visit the Three Cups of Tea website to learn more about Mortenson's mission to promote peace, one school at a time.
