TRAVEL
December 20, 2009 | By Amanda Jones, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
Here's an idea for a feel-good Christmas present -- a "benevolit" book. That's what I'm calling this relatively new and increasingly popular genre of travel literature. They are typically narratives of journeys that were so life-changing as to inspire the author to start a philanthropy dedicated to helping those who helped them on their adventures. Three Cups of Tea Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin Viking (2006): 349 pp., $16 The meteoric success in the category is "Three Cups of Tea," by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin, which, despite being of average literary merit, has spent more than 145 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

David Oliver Relin, Gregory Mortenson's co-author on the bestseller "Three Cups of Tea," has died. The 49-year-old committed suicide Nov. 15 in Oregon, the Multnomah County medical examiner announced late Sunday, saying blunt force trauma to the head was the cause of death. Relin's suicide adds to the shadow cast on "Three Cups of Tea," which tells of Mortenson's travels in the mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan and his work creating schools for the children, particularly girls, in those remote regions.
