About this product
- DescriptionIn January 1959, ten experienced young skiers set out for Mount Otorten in the far rth of Russia. While one of the skiers fell ill and returned., the remaining nine lost their way and ended up on ather mountain slope kwn 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 to slash their way out. Search parties were sent out and their bodies were found, some with massive internal injuries but with external marks on them. The autopsy stated the violent injuries were caused by 'an unkwn compelling force'. The area was sealed off for years by the authorities and the full events of that night remained unexplained. Using original research carried out in Russia and photographs from the skier's cameras, Keith McCloskey attempts to explain what happened to the nine young people who lost their lives in the mysterious 'Dyatlov Pass Incident'.
