    This is one creepy-ass unsolved mystery, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. The true story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident and the inexplicable deaths of nine experienced hikers is one of those strange but true tales that leaves a person shuddering from the heebie-jeebie...

    An Excellent Read. Thank you to Mr Donnie Eichar for finally satisfying my curiosity on the Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident. I had come across this story on a couple of occasions but had very little information on it and was so glad to have located this book while searching for ...

    We are fragile beings. The camaraderie of a group, their emotions, their smiles only last so long: Through photographs, the eternal message of latter days. When a book stays on your mind continuously for several days, you have to then try to reason why. Why am I still thinking a...

    In 1959, 9 experienced hikers disappear in the Ural Mountains. What becomes a search and rescue mission, unfortunately becomes a recovery one. It takes months before all of the bodies are located. Speculation and theories surround the mystery of what happened to make them leave the sec...

    I?d been wanting to read this nonfiction for ages but never really felt in the mood for it. Just before Christmas I picked it up, and it did take me a couple of weeks to read, but it was worth it! An emotional and insightful look at the mysterious Dyatlov Pass Incident. I?ve alw...

    This was an excellent nonfiction. I think this is as close to a true crime book I've read - due to the mystery surrounding the deceased Dyatlov hikers - and I enjoyed myself so much I think I'll have to start reading true crime! Eichar is foremost concerned with humanizing the nine hik...

    I read this book over a weekend and found it impossible to put down! Since then, I have been devouring any piece of information I can find on the Dyatlov Pass Incident. That alone is testament to the passion and infectious enthusiasm for the case that Donnie Eichar has put into this bo...

    I heard about this incident a while back, through a youtube video and it intrigued me ever sense. I researched the story on the internet, but unfortunately all I got were crackpot theories about UFOs and Yetis. The lack of hard facts annoyed me and that's why I was so eager to read th...

    Wow. Wow. I have read some GREAT books as part of my 2015-2016 adventure themed read (which, btw is going on much longer than it was intended to because books just keep falling into my lap), but this book definitely stands among the best. If you are familiar with alpining and rock c...

    I had never heard of the Dyatlov Pass Incident before and it was only through another Goodreads friend that I even came across this book, thanks Dem! What a great first read of 2015 to get the New Year off to a fabulous reading start, a five star read! I decided not to buy the kindl...

    The Dyatlov Pass Incident has all the ingredients necessary for a creepy, enduring mystery: back in 1959, nine Russian college students went for a hike in the Urals, an inhospitable, avalanche-prone region, and never returned. Search parties eventually found their bodies, scattered, un...

    I picked this book up without reading the title properly. I thought I was going to read about the Donner Party but no it was about a different tragedy, the Dyatlov Pass Incident. I've never heard of this catastrophe - nine Russian skiers died in terrible and strange circumstances in 19...

    Fascinating, well written (and it read like a novel), and ultimately satisfying (as in I got the answers I wanted!!!). ...

    Received through GR First Reads. I haven't been this wrapped up in a survival story since reading Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster years ago. I knew a little about the 1959 tragedy of the 9 "hikers" (translation aside, "expeditioners" is more accurate), mos...

    This was a very interesting story. I was engaged in all the characters. This was a smooth and very informative read. I loved learning about the ways of the times in Russia in 1959. This author's writing was very detailed and made me feel as though I was there with them. It was clear th...

    I zipped through this book because I found the subject matter fascinating, but the presentation of the material definitely disappointed me. I had two major problems with the book: 1. A LARGE chunk of the book was devoted to the author telling his own story about traveling to Russia, p...

    Here the basic points about the Dyatlov Pass incident: on the night of February 2, 1959 a group of ten Russian hikers in the frozen Ural mountains left their tents (or cut there way out, in one case) without cold weather gear or even shoes. None of them survived the night. Their bodies...

    Super creepy story. I admit that I learned about this incidence first from the rather wonderfully horrible movie called Devil's Pass on Netfix. After that movie, I went through the dark places of the internet to explore the topic. The pictures you can find on there are not for the f...

    Trying to write about, and solve, a 50-year-old mystery that occurred in a foreign country must have been a daunting task, but the author has done a brilliant job. The book is well written, and the subject well researched, which makes it a compelling read. Included are photogra...

    Thank you, Donnie Eichar, for not writing a kooky book. Or, more precisely, a book with a kooky theory proffered in "solving" the mystery (truly!!!) of the nine Dyatlov Pass hikers, who perished under bizarre circumstances. The story of these hikers and their demise was so inexplicab...

    In 1959, in the remote Ural Mountains of Russia, near Siberia, ten college students set out on their winter break to earn their Grade III hiking level, the most difficult. Ten days into their trip (and minus one hiker who turned back to head home a few days earlier because of the pain ...

    4.5 stars rounded up. I love real life survival stories and although this book was more of a mystery and enquiry into what really happened to the Dyatlov hikers back on Feb 1, 1959, it certainly fit the mold. It was incredibly compelling and contained many interesting facts about Russi...

    donnie eichar's dead mountain, the true story of the mysterious and compelling dyatlov pass incident, is as riveting a tale as they come. for over a half-century, this infamous tragedy has remained inexplicable yet endlessly intriguing. eichar's impressively-researched book may well be...

    Reminder to self: self, write a proper review for this. Twas a damn good book. ...

    The Dyatlov Pass Incident has all the ingredients necessary for a creepy, enduring mystery: back in 1959, nine Russian college students went for a hike in the Urals, an inhospitable, avalanche-prone region, and never returned. Search parties eventually found their bodies, scattered, un...

    I picked this book up without reading the title properly. I thought I was going to read about the Donner Party but no it was about a different tragedy, the Dyatlov Pass Incident. I've never heard of this catastrophe - nine Russian skiers died in terrible and strange circumstances in 19...

    Fascinating, well written (and it read like a novel), and ultimately satisfying (as in I got the answers I wanted!!!). ...

    Received through GR First Reads. I haven't been this wrapped up in a survival story since reading Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster years ago. I knew a little about the 1959 tragedy of the 9 "hikers" (translation aside, "expeditioners" is more accurate), mos...

    This was a very interesting story. I was engaged in all the characters. This was a smooth and very informative read. I loved learning about the ways of the times in Russia in 1959. This author's writing was very detailed and made me feel as though I was there with them. It was clear th...

    Nice to start a year with 5 star book. 'In February 1959, a group of nine experienced hikers in the Russian Ural Mountains died mysteriously on an elevation known as Dead Mountain. Eerie aspects of the incident?unexplained violent injuries, signs that they cut open and fled the t...

    How?s this for a mystery? In February 1959, nine Russian hikers ventured into the Ural Mountains and never returned. When searchers went looking for them, they discovered a distressing scene. The hikers? tent had been cut open. Despite ample supplies, the hikers? bodies were ...

    This is one creepy-ass unsolved mystery, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. The true story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident and the inexplicable deaths of nine experienced hikers is one of those strange but true tales that leaves a person shuddering from the heebie-jeebie...

    I?d been wanting to read this nonfiction for ages but never really felt in the mood for it. Just before Christmas I picked it up, and it did take me a couple of weeks to read, but it was worth it! An emotional and insightful look at the mysterious Dyatlov Pass Incident. I?ve alw...

    This was an excellent nonfiction. I think this is as close to a true crime book I've read - due to the mystery surrounding the deceased Dyatlov hikers - and I enjoyed myself so much I think I'll have to start reading true crime! Eichar is foremost concerned with humanizing the nine hik...

    This is one creepy-ass unsolved mystery, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. The true story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident and the inexplicable deaths of nine experienced hikers is one of those strange but true tales that leaves a person shuddering from the heebie-jeebie...

    An Excellent Read. Thank you to Mr Donnie Eichar for finally satisfying my curiosity on the Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident. I had come across this story on a couple of occasions but had very little information on it and was so glad to have located this book while searching for ...

    I?d been wanting to read this nonfiction for ages but never really felt in the mood for it. Just before Christmas I picked it up, and it did take me a couple of weeks to read, but it was worth it! An emotional and insightful look at the mysterious Dyatlov Pass Incident. I?ve alw...

    This was an excellent nonfiction. I think this is as close to a true crime book I've read - due to the mystery surrounding the deceased Dyatlov hikers - and I enjoyed myself so much I think I'll have to start reading true crime! Eichar is foremost concerned with humanizing the nine hik...

    I read this book over a weekend and found it impossible to put down! Since then, I have been devouring any piece of information I can find on the Dyatlov Pass Incident. That alone is testament to the passion and infectious enthusiasm for the case that Donnie Eichar has put into this bo...

    I heard about this incident a while back, through a youtube video and it intrigued me ever sense. I researched the story on the internet, but unfortunately all I got were crackpot theories about UFOs and Yetis. The lack of hard facts annoyed me and that's why I was so eager to read th...

    Wow. Wow. I have read some GREAT books as part of my 2015-2016 adventure themed read (which, btw is going on much longer than it was intended to because books just keep falling into my lap), but this book definitely stands among the best. If you are familiar with alpining and rock c...

    I had never heard of the Dyatlov Pass Incident before and it was only through another Goodreads friend that I even came across this book, thanks Dem! What a great first read of 2015 to get the New Year off to a fabulous reading start, a five star read! I decided not to buy the kindl...

    Reminder to self: self, write a proper review for this. Twas a damn good book. ...

    The Dyatlov Pass Incident has all the ingredients necessary for a creepy, enduring mystery: back in 1959, nine Russian college students went for a hike in the Urals, an inhospitable, avalanche-prone region, and never returned. Search parties eventually found their bodies, scattered, un...

    I picked this book up without reading the title properly. I thought I was going to read about the Donner Party but no it was about a different tragedy, the Dyatlov Pass Incident. I've never heard of this catastrophe - nine Russian skiers died in terrible and strange circumstances in 19...

    Fascinating, well written (and it read like a novel), and ultimately satisfying (as in I got the answers I wanted!!!). ...

    Received through GR First Reads. I haven't been this wrapped up in a survival story since reading Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster years ago. I knew a little about the 1959 tragedy of the 9 "hikers" (translation aside, "expeditioners" is more accurate), mos...

    This was a very interesting story. I was engaged in all the characters. This was a smooth and very informative read. I loved learning about the ways of the times in Russia in 1959. This author's writing was very detailed and made me feel as though I was there with them. It was clear th...

    Nice to start a year with 5 star book. 'In February 1959, a group of nine experienced hikers in the Russian Ural Mountains died mysteriously on an elevation known as Dead Mountain. Eerie aspects of the incident?unexplained violent injuries, signs that they cut open and fled the t...

    Here the basic points about the Dyatlov Pass incident: on the night of February 2, 1959 a group of ten Russian hikers in the frozen Ural mountains left their tents (or cut there way out, in one case) without cold weather gear or even shoes. None of them survived the night. Their bodies...

    Super creepy story. I admit that I learned about this incidence first from the rather wonderfully horrible movie called Devil's Pass on Netfix. After that movie, I went through the dark places of the internet to explore the topic. The pictures you can find on there are not for the f...

    Trying to write about, and solve, a 50-year-old mystery that occurred in a foreign country must have been a daunting task, but the author has done a brilliant job. The book is well written, and the subject well researched, which makes it a compelling read. Included are photogra...

    Thank you, Donnie Eichar, for not writing a kooky book. Or, more precisely, a book with a kooky theory proffered in "solving" the mystery (truly!!!) of the nine Dyatlov Pass hikers, who perished under bizarre circumstances. The story of these hikers and their demise was so inexplicab...

    In 1959, in the remote Ural Mountains of Russia, near Siberia, ten college students set out on their winter break to earn their Grade III hiking level, the most difficult. Ten days into their trip (and minus one hiker who turned back to head home a few days earlier because of the pain ...

    4.5 stars rounded up. I love real life survival stories and although this book was more of a mystery and enquiry into what really happened to the Dyatlov hikers back on Feb 1, 1959, it certainly fit the mold. It was incredibly compelling and contained many interesting facts about Russi...

    donnie eichar's dead mountain, the true story of the mysterious and compelling dyatlov pass incident, is as riveting a tale as they come. for over a half-century, this infamous tragedy has remained inexplicable yet endlessly intriguing. eichar's impressively-researched book may well be...

    Probably the most emotionally exhausting thing I've read all year, but worth it for anyone who's read about the mysterious Dyatlov Pass incident on the Internet and wanted to learn more. Eichar, having exhausted every conspiracy website about the tragedy, makes it clear that he's not i...

    In 1959, 9 experienced hikers disappear in the Ural Mountains. What becomes a search and rescue mission, unfortunately becomes a recovery one. It takes months before all of the bodies are located. Speculation and theories surround the mystery of what happened to make them leave the sec...

    I?d been wanting to read this nonfiction for ages but never really felt in the mood for it. Just before Christmas I picked it up, and it did take me a couple of weeks to read, but it was worth it! An emotional and insightful look at the mysterious Dyatlov Pass Incident. I?ve alw...

    This was an excellent nonfiction. I think this is as close to a true crime book I've read - due to the mystery surrounding the deceased Dyatlov hikers - and I enjoyed myself so much I think I'll have to start reading true crime! Eichar is foremost concerned with humanizing the nine hik...

    I read this book over a weekend and found it impossible to put down! Since then, I have been devouring any piece of information I can find on the Dyatlov Pass Incident. That alone is testament to the passion and infectious enthusiasm for the case that Donnie Eichar has put into this bo...

    I heard about this incident a while back, through a youtube video and it intrigued me ever sense. I researched the story on the internet, but unfortunately all I got were crackpot theories about UFOs and Yetis. The lack of hard facts annoyed me and that's why I was so eager to read th...

    Wow. Wow. I have read some GREAT books as part of my 2015-2016 adventure themed read (which, btw is going on much longer than it was intended to because books just keep falling into my lap), but this book definitely stands among the best. If you are familiar with alpining and rock c...

    I had never heard of the Dyatlov Pass Incident before and it was only through another Goodreads friend that I even came across this book, thanks Dem! What a great first read of 2015 to get the New Year off to a fabulous reading start, a five star read! I decided not to buy the kindl...

    Reminder to self: self, write a proper review for this. Twas a damn good book. ...

    The Dyatlov Pass Incident has all the ingredients necessary for a creepy, enduring mystery: back in 1959, nine Russian college students went for a hike in the Urals, an inhospitable, avalanche-prone region, and never returned. Search parties eventually found their bodies, scattered, un...

    I picked this book up without reading the title properly. I thought I was going to read about the Donner Party but no it was about a different tragedy, the Dyatlov Pass Incident. I've never heard of this catastrophe - nine Russian skiers died in terrible and strange circumstances in 19...

    Fascinating, well written (and it read like a novel), and ultimately satisfying (as in I got the answers I wanted!!!). ...

    Received through GR First Reads. I haven't been this wrapped up in a survival story since reading Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster years ago. I knew a little about the 1959 tragedy of the 9 "hikers" (translation aside, "expeditioners" is more accurate), mos...

    This was a very interesting story. I was engaged in all the characters. This was a smooth and very informative read. I loved learning about the ways of the times in Russia in 1959. This author's writing was very detailed and made me feel as though I was there with them. It was clear th...

    I zipped through this book because I found the subject matter fascinating, but the presentation of the material definitely disappointed me. I had two major problems with the book: 1. A LARGE chunk of the book was devoted to the author telling his own story about traveling to Russia, p...

    Nice to start a year with 5 star book. 'In February 1959, a group of nine experienced hikers in the Russian Ural Mountains died mysteriously on an elevation known as Dead Mountain. Eerie aspects of the incident?unexplained violent injuries, signs that they cut open and fled the t...

    Here the basic points about the Dyatlov Pass incident: on the night of February 2, 1959 a group of ten Russian hikers in the frozen Ural mountains left their tents (or cut there way out, in one case) without cold weather gear or even shoes. None of them survived the night. Their bodies...

    Super creepy story. I admit that I learned about this incidence first from the rather wonderfully horrible movie called Devil's Pass on Netfix. After that movie, I went through the dark places of the internet to explore the topic. The pictures you can find on there are not for the f...

    Trying to write about, and solve, a 50-year-old mystery that occurred in a foreign country must have been a daunting task, but the author has done a brilliant job. The book is well written, and the subject well researched, which makes it a compelling read. Included are photogra...

    Thank you, Donnie Eichar, for not writing a kooky book. Or, more precisely, a book with a kooky theory proffered in "solving" the mystery (truly!!!) of the nine Dyatlov Pass hikers, who perished under bizarre circumstances. The story of these hikers and their demise was so inexplicab...

    In 1959, in the remote Ural Mountains of Russia, near Siberia, ten college students set out on their winter break to earn their Grade III hiking level, the most difficult. Ten days into their trip (and minus one hiker who turned back to head home a few days earlier because of the pain ...

    4.5 stars rounded up. I love real life survival stories and although this book was more of a mystery and enquiry into what really happened to the Dyatlov hikers back on Feb 1, 1959, it certainly fit the mold. It was incredibly compelling and contained many interesting facts about Russi...

    This is one creepy-ass unsolved mystery, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. The true story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident and the inexplicable deaths of nine experienced hikers is one of those strange but true tales that leaves a person shuddering from the heebie-jeebie...

    donnie eichar's dead mountain, the true story of the mysterious and compelling dyatlov pass incident, is as riveting a tale as they come. for over a half-century, this infamous tragedy has remained inexplicable yet endlessly intriguing. eichar's impressively-researched book may well be...

    Probably the most emotionally exhausting thing I've read all year, but worth it for anyone who's read about the mysterious Dyatlov Pass incident on the Internet and wanted to learn more. Eichar, having exhausted every conspiracy website about the tragedy, makes it clear that he's not i...

    This started off very captivating as the true story of the Dyatlov group of hiker's fate was revealed and it was a quick and recommended read. A couple of things made me settle for a three-star rating though. First, while the narrative and disposition of the story (the alternating tell...
