At the Foot of the Fish-Tail Mountain

Lily O'Hanlon

"This is a most disturbing book: it is an account of a modern miracle. It is far more than a record of a great missionary adventure. It is convicting and challenging. It has made me thoroughly ashamed of
myself, and my so much more easy pilgrimage."

The Nepali Diaspora

Val Inchley

Although most Nepali migrants have gone to India, they are now represented in at least 130 countries around the world. Increasing numbers of students and professionals have moved to the West, but more than 2.5 million have become labourers in South East Asia and the Middle East in dirty, difficult and dangerous jobs.
