Author: Greg Mortenson and Susan L. Roth
Listen To The WindCollages by Susan L. Roth

Greg Mortenson stumbled, lost and delirious,
into a remote Himalayan village after
a failed climb up K2. The villagers saved his life,
and he vowed to return and build them a school.
The remarkable story of his promise kept
is now perfect for reading aloud.
Told in the voice of Korphe's children,
this story illuminates the humanity and culture
of a relevant and distant part of the world in gorgeous collage,
while sharing a riveting example of how one person
can change thousands of lives
