Dead Mountain by Donnie Eichar

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

Very well presented description of events leading up to the hikers' disappearance, the initial search and investigation into their deaths and the author's own investigation. This story was intriguing and the author's conclusion about what happened is believable. This story was amazing and seemed straight out of an X Files episode. 

As usual, I am always amazed at people who find trekking into the mountains in treacherous conditions fun. It is not something I would want to do. I just don't understand the appeal.

Really enjoyed this and can't wait for book group to discuss. 

Happy Reading!


  1. This seems like it'd be similar to a thriller movie that kept you on the edge of your seat. I saw the Everest documentary in 3-D long ago. It was full of emotion.

    1. That documentary was really good. This would make a great movie.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
