Greg Mortenson chronicles how he came to build schools in rural Pakistan and Afghanistan in his best-selling book, "Three Cups of Tea." His story began with an ill-fated climb of K2, the second-highest mountain in the world. It lies in the Karakoram Range on the Pakistan-China border. (Greg Mortenson)
