Stones into Schools
The continuing story of Greg Mortenson's determined
 humanitarian efforts to promote Peace through Education.



Season's Greetings and Happy Thanksgiving from Central Asia Institute and Greg Mortenson!

We are delighted at the publication of Greg Mortenson's new book, Stones into School: Promoting Peace with Book, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The story is a continuum of Three Cups of Tea and is weaved with a tapestry of stories about our students and the impact of education on their lives.
Stones into Schools will be launched nationally at bookstores and websites on December 1st 2009.  You can purchase the book here. Please volunteer for us by encouraging people to check with local bookstores, public libraries, school libraries, mosques, churches and synagogues to carry Stones into Schools. You have helped to make Three Cups of Tea a bestseller with your recommendations, letters to editors, book clubs, schools, college Freshman Reads and making it a 'community read'.

In this vivid first-person narrative, the story picks up where Three Cups of Tea left off in 2003, recounting CAI's relentless, ongoing efforts to establish schools for girls in Afghanistan; Mortenson's extensive work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after a massive earthquake hit the region in 2005; and the unique ways he has built relationships with Islamic clerics, militia commanders, and tribal leaders.
He shares for the first time his broader vision to promote peace through education and literacy, as well as touching on military matters, Islam, and women-all woven together with the many rich personal stories of the people who have been involved in this remarkable two-decade humanitarian effort. Since the 2006 publication of Three Cups of Tea, Mortenson has traveled across the U.S. and the world to share his vision with hundreds of thousands of people. He has met with heads of state, top military officials, and leading politicians who all seek his advice and insight.

Again we look towards your grass root publicity to help us spread the message about the Stones into Schools.  You can buy the book here through CAI and Amazon and Indie bound (Independent bookseller) and all book purchases will generate 7% to CAI. Check our new website at
Blessings of Peace from our family to yours.
