A New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller – What happened that night on Dead Mountain? The mystery of Dead Mountain: 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 tent without proper clothing or shoes, a strange final photograph taken by one of the hikers, and elevated levels of radiation found on some of their clothes—have led to decades of speculation over what really happened. As gripping and bizarre as Hunt for the Skin Walker: This New York Times bestseller, Dead Mountain: The Untold True Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident, is a gripping work of literary nonfiction that delves into the mystery of Dead Mountain through unprecedented access to the hikers' own journals and photographs, rarely seen government records, dozens of interviews, and the author's retracing of the hikers' fateful journey in the Russian winter. You'll love this real-life tale: Dead Mountain is a fascinating portrait of young adventurers in the Soviet era, and a skillful interweaving of the hikers' narrative, the investigators' efforts, and the author's investigations. Here for the first time is the real story of what happened that night on Dead Mountain.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I had taken two trips to Russia, traveled 15,000 miles, and left my infant son and his mother to be here. I was extremely eager to find the location of the tent where nine hikers died in 1959. #2 The Dyatlov hiking group tragedy is still unexplained after more than 50 years. The group died from an unknown compelling force, and their bodies were found half-dressed in subzero temperatures. #3 I was drawn to the Dyatlov case because it presented me with a human puzzle. I wanted to solve it and understand the motivations of the hikers. I grew up in the 1970s and 1980s on the central Gulf Coast of Florida, and I had been born to teenage parents. I had taken a trip with my father to the surfers’ playground of Costa Rica in 1987, when I was fifteen. #4 I was able to make contact with Yuri Kuntsevich, the head of the Dyatlov Foundation in Yekaterinburg, Russia. He explained that the foundation’s mission was both to preserve the memories of the hikers and to uncover the truth of the 1959 tragedy.
