Abstract (2. Language): 
This article examines the work of Greg Mortenson titled Three cups of Tea in terms of American values, maybe the first three of them such as; individualism, perseverance and heroism. Having a missionary background the book, which is a non-fiction work that tells about Mortenson’s life, came out as a result of climbing K2. The writer of the book is David Oliver Relin, but the person who has lived all the events has been Mortenson himself, therefore Relin has told everything again as if Mortenson was writing the book. This study aims to investigate how a mountaineer turns into a hero and show that American values form the basis for Mortenson’s attempt to build schools to promote peace for the area.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Bu makalede, Greg Mortenson’un Üç Fincan Çay adlı eserinde Amerikan değerlerinden belki de ilk üç sırayı alan bireycilik, azim ve kahramanlık konuları incelenmiştir. Misyoner bir aile geçmişi olan Mortenson’un hayatını anlatan kurgusal olmayan bu eseri, K2’ye yapmış olduğu bir tırmanış sonucu ortaya çıkmıştır. Kitabın asıl yazarı David Oliver Relin’dir, ancak olayları yaşayan kişi Mortenson’un kendisidir, bundan dolayı kitapta olan olayları Mortenson’un ağzından tekrar anlatmıştır. Bu çalışma ile bir dağcının nasıl kahramana dönüştüğünü araştırırken, Amerikan değerlerinin, gittiği yere barışı götürmek için okullar inşa etme girişiminin temelini oluşturduğunu göstermektir.
