On April 25th, 2015, an earthquake of 7.8 magnitude shook Nepal. Almost 9,000 people died, more than 22,000 people suffered injuries and more than half a million houses were destroyed. For months aftershocks rocked the country. People occupied the streets and open spaces in fear. Chaos dominated daily life.

"Endurance" is a book about the lesson of life that the people of Nepal have given after being hit by one of the worst natural disasters ever recorded and the worst to hit Nepal since 1934." Nepal vanished little by little from the news while the Nepali people continued their struggle, fighting as they did from day one, to help each other and rebuild out of the devastation. "Endurance" tells their story.
