Summary
  • Describes how the Afghan-born author flourished throughout her upbringing in America thanks to organized athletics, her founding of the Afghan Youth Sports Exchange for Afghan girls after the fall of the Taliban, and the personal stories of eight young soccer players
  • By bringing soccer to young Afghan women, Awista re-introduced the very traits decades of war in Afghanistan had cruelly stripped away from them--confidence and self-worth. In However Tall the Mountain, she tells her story and the stories of the eight original girls. Timely, heartfelt, and moving, it shows how women can find strength in each other, in teamwork, and in themselves--risking their lives to obtain the freedom that we take for granted
