Mountain of the Dead In January 1959, ten experienced young skiers set out for Mount Otorten in the far north of Russia. While one of the skiers fell ill and returned., the remaining nine lost their way and ended up on another mountain slope known as Kholat Syakhl (or 'Mountain of the Dead'). On the night of 1 February 1959 something or someone caused the skiers to flee their tent in such terror that they used knives ... Full description

A decent effort 28 septembre 2013
Par chemical007 - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A helpful and conscientious effort -and a courageous one - towards shedding light on what certainly must be a wholly intractable mystery. The Dyatlov Pass Incident, to this day, obsesses and frustrates tens of thousands drawn to what arguably is the most compelling and disturbing of the great extant unsolved mysteries.
The greatest compliment I can bestow on this book is to recommend it as the best starter material for those wishing to embark on this quest. The beginning chapters are well-researched, sensible and sober, professionally presented and even replete with fresh information. Clearly, the best reference source publicly available.
Things fall apart as the book proceeds to devote single chapters to the various popular theories attempting to explain the event. Initially, the book stays firmly course with rational and well-annotated expositions of the more plausible theories.
The theory that the disaster site was created artificially or significantly modified has, to my knowledge, not been explored deeply elsewhere and the treatment accorded here towards that possibility is riveting. Also, a tremendous debt of gratitude is owed the author for untangling the bureaucratic chronology, particularly in respect to official documents. Students of this case can now seriously accept the argument that much falsification of official reports took place, and quite likely an investigation was underway before anyone in the general population was aware anything amiss had occurred.
Unfortunately, at the point at which UFOs and the "strange lights" supposed
phenomena are dragged onstage, caution is thrown to the wind and absolute balderdash takes over the reins. This is inevitable in the Realm of the Dyatlov, and the author makes no effort to add credence to the lunatic ravings, but they take up too much of an otherwise fine read and seem to be included simpky to pad the page
The photo section is excellent, the maps and diagrams much less so.
This is really about as fair a treatment as we'll ever get, so my recommendation is buy it, read it and slowly go insane trying to figure out what really happened.

Solid research, comprehensive investigation, lots of speculation 30 juillet 2013

The author did what he could and his comprehensive review of many theories, from mundane to fantastic, is a nice method. The only thing the book suffers from is not the authors fault--any hope of getting closer to he truth is. Likely gone forever due to Cold War secrecy and eastern bloc cover ups. McCloskey tries his bet to dig past that, but there's little he can do beyond some witness statements provided by the fe remaining people tangentially involved some 50-60 years later. All in all an entertaining read, I finished it in about 4 days.

If you dislike my review, then please feel free to write your own, but the following is my personal take on the book.

The book is written in workmanlike fashion, and almost overwhelms you with details, as well as Russian names that you cannot pronounce.

It is set against the backdrop of the cult-like, insular, and highly paranoid world of the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War. The military had installations virtually all over the countryside. Some were secret, some not, but there appeared to be no limit to the number and kind of weapons systems they were experimenting with in order to get a leg up on NATO and the United States. Could this have somehow been a factor in the tragedy? Perhaps.

When you examine something like this, you need to avoid the two extremes: What I (and others) refer to as "know nothing skepticism", where you insist there MUST be be a "simple" explanation (there may not be). You also need to steer clear of wild speculation, where you assume there MUST be some paranormal, or extraterrestrial, "answer" even when there is no hard evidence for it. While the freaky and wholly inexplicable "light show" observed by two other credible individuals in that same general area in later years would definitely be enough to seriously spook anyone, there is nothing to indicate the doomed hikers ever encountered it, or anything like it.

Three things - but little else - seem certain. The first is that none of the theories of what happened - however mundane or fantastic they may be - seem to fit all the facts. That is part of what makes this story so captivating.

The infrasound theory is intriguing, but remains unsubstantiated. We can say that infrasound is capable of this, or that, but so what? Absent empirical evidence, it remains a somewhat plausible, but speculative, and to some extent, inadequate scenario in my estimation.

The second is that whatever the perceived threat was, it was not likely viewed by the group as emanating from the forest below. Otherwise, it would have made no sense for them to descend the slope and attempt to find some cover at the treeline. Thus, the danger was probably either at - or approaching - the tent, or somehow above them; either in the sky, or higher up the hill. I have not personally seen anything that points to a Yeti - or any other animal for that matter, real or mythical - being involved in this. I think some people like the abominable snowman scenario because it would definitely provide the requisite fear level that could cause otherwise sane people to panic.

Lastly, whatever transpired, something extraordinary occurred that was bizarre enough to cause intelligent, experienced back country skiers to completely lose their wits and behave in an irrational way that essentially ensured their own destruction.

When you add up all the evidence, including the condition and location of the bodies when they were found, it really does appear that something very strange took place here. Remember, this was not some clueless suburban family out for a weekend trip to the snow. These were fit, equipped, and capable people who knew exactly what they were getting into. Yet, they all perished under mysterious circumstances.

The fact that high ranking Soviets were so involved in the search - and that the government closed off the area for years after the incident - suggests the authorities knew (or at least thought they knew) more about what had actually happened than they were willing to admit publicly.

A enduring, genuine true life mystery and an entertaining read.

Format: Broché
The Dyatlov Pass Incident is a true mystery. Something happen in 1959 to a group of skiers in the Ural Mountains that defies any kind of easy explanation. All 9 were found dead, after fleeing their tent that night, slashing their way out, with no supplies and unprepared for the excessive cold outside. They were experienced at this type of camping, and why they would do this is beyond puzzling. They all died of hypothermia, some with even more puzzling injuries. So what happened to them? Keith McCloskey does a fantastic job in laying out their final days. He paints a picture of the Soviet Union at that time, and their trip up the mountain. You get a feel for who these people were and the environment they were living in. He then gets down to describing how they were found, and the condition and location of the bodies. It’s a hard to put down book. Keith attempts to give ample voice to the various theories and take things apart to examine the facts thoroughly. At no point does he claim to have a complete solution, nor does he ignore evidence. He presents what we know, how we know it, and possibilities. He does have his own thoughts on the matter, of course, which he expresses, but not in a way that feels like he is stating the definitive last word by any means. If you are new to this mystery or not, this is the book you want to read. Unnerving, fascinating, and just an overall good read. Highly recommended.

Full of facts and theories 12 août 2013

Good book. I love reading about this mystery. This book is full of facts and theories from the mundane to the supernatural. Unfortunately, no single theory fits 100%. It's like a jigsaw puzzle where all the pieces fit but one!
