"[An] eerie and well-researched tale." --Dread Central"Fantastic." --WVBR-FM on Where Did the Road Go? blog
Chock full of background information...the most fascinating theory offered in Mountain of the Dead actually has a possible tie-in to more recent events...I [am] fascinated by McCloskey s inclusion of Yury Yakimov s light set tale. Something tells me there is more going on in the remote Urals than meets the eye and that it may have a connection to a 55-year old mystery. **** --Red Dirt Report

So what does it give us, apart from a cover that is faintly distasteful? Well, for starters, the author has done a lot of background reading. As a result, his trawl through the wide range of theories and speculations that have been offered to explain the Dyatlov Pass tragedy is thorough and all-encompassing. Not afraid to grapple with the more outlandish theories surrounding the incident, 'Mountain of the Dead' also provides some useful biographical background on each of the nine who lost his or her life together with an interesting survey of the historical context. It's an easy read, too, and if it's the only book you've read on the Dyatlov Pass incident it'll probably leave you wanting more. Best to start here, then, before moving on to the other, better, studies.
