Three Cups of Tea or Three Cups of Deceit?

Hosted by  • 

book1.jpgGreg Mortenson made an international sensation out of his book about building schools in Pakistan out of gratitude for his treatment by tribesmen after he got lost on a climbing expedition. Now he's accused of lying and making personal use of millions of dollars donated to his charity. Three Cups of Tea has come in for withering criticism from author Jon Krakauer, whose attack is called Three Cups of Deceit. Now, Mortenson's Central Asia Institute is being scrutinized by the attorney general of Montana, where the charity is located. Alex Heard, Editorial Director of Outside magazine, picks up the story.book.jpg
