Dead Mountain: The Untold True Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident

By Donnie Eichar, with J.C. Gabel and Nova Jacobs (Chronicle Books, 2013)

In 1959 Soviet Russia, a group of students set out from their hometown of Sverdlovsk on a winter excursion into the northern Ural Mountains. They never returned. Their nine bodies were eventually found a mile from their campsite, many without shoes and winter clothing. Violent injuries and a conflicting set of clues have confounded investigators for decades, making this one of the most enduring and debated mysteries in Russian history. Now, in this New York Times best-seller, Donnie Eichar reveals what really happened at Dyatlov Pass.

Booklist calls it "gripping ... at least as dramatic as Krakauer’s Into Thin Air.”
