    Excellent read. Theories arestill just that.

    The book is a very gripping story about 9 young russian students who hike into the Urall mountains in 1959 only to end up missing. After an exhaustive search by government, family and friends, their tent and eventually all nine bodies are recovered. Autopsy results reveals how they died but not what caused nine very experienced hikers to flee the safety of their tent in subzero weather, lightly dressed with no boots on in the middle of a very cold and stormy night. The author pieces together the groups journey to the "Mountain of death" from journals and photographs recovered by the search parties who discovered the groups remains. Several theories as to what led to the hikers fate are put forward including the author's own. It is left up to the reader as to which theory is the more logical one or speculate a theory of their own.

    Intriguing..

    This is one of those mysterious that comes up again and again, one that can never be solved because all the witnesses are dead. Or can it be solved? Well written, complex and absorbing, this is an excellent investigation of the mystery.

    Dead Mountain

    I really had no idea of this tragedy until I picked up this book. It was very well told by this auther. I was kept on the edge and interested the whole way throught this book and the findings are amazing. You will enjoy this book.

    Compelling read

    I enjoyed the majority of this book but had far greater interest in the actual incident than the telling of the author's trip to the site. The book oscillated between chapters on one and then chapters on the other. I often found myself skimming through the author chapters. I didn't particularly care he'd bought an expensive pair of boots or was struggling with a decision to buy gortex or not. His research in the events was thorough and examination of the possible causes compelling. One of my theories was thrown easily out of the window once I saw all the evidence. I believe the author has come to a reasonable and scientifically provable conclusion. It would be interesting to see if there are any plans to physically record the postulated cause. However, we should not forget that nine young people in their prime lost their lives, and any investigation or recreation should be done with respect of that in mind. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys disasters or mysteries.
