While the Carroll County Reads program is all wrapped up, I am still thinking about some of the issues the book, “Three Cups of Tea,” raised in my mind.

I picture these poorest of children living in mud-walled houses that are heated in the winter with dried yak dung.

Yes, yak dung.

The families have very little. For some, a good quilt is an heirloom to be handled with great care and brought out only for the most important company.
