I just finished reading this book my neighbor loaned me. It is about an American who becomes involved building schools in impoverished areas in Pakistan and Afghanistan. He was a mountain climber who had tried to climb the second highest mountain in the world, K2, but failed. His life was saved by a rural village who helped him after he became lost and separated from his party. He decided to repay their generosity by building a school for this village. His mission just grew from there.
The book teaches tolerance in the sense that we cannot view every Muslim as a terrorist. It also emphasizes spreading goodwill and combating terrorism through education.
