Greg Mortenson: Jon Krakauer calls out Three Cups of Tea author on 60 Minutes (VIDEO)

Greg Mortenson is the mega-selling author of Three Cups of Tea, and he's a big supporter of education for girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan. But are all the stories he tells about his experiences true? Maybe not, according to a 60 Minutes report -- and among the main people questioning him is Boulder's own Jon Kraukauer, whose own best sellers include Into the Wild.

It's a fascinating piece. Watch it here.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
