Book Summary:

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.

Book Summary:

The Dyatlov Pass incident resulted in nine unsolved, mysterious deaths; Keith McCloskey attempts to decipher the bizzare events that led up to that night and the subsequent aftermathIn January 1959, 10 experienced young skiers set out to travel to a mountain named Mount Otorten in the far north of Russia. Otorten translates to "don't go there" in the local Mansi language. During the trip, 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 February 1, 1959, something or someone caused the skiers to flee their tent in terror, using knives to slash their way out instead of using the entrance. When they failed to return home, search parties were sent out and their bodies were found, some with massive internal injuries but all without external marks. The autopsy report showed that the injuries were caused by "an unknown compelling force." Subsequently, the area was sealed off for years by the authorities and the deaths and events of that night remained unexplained. Benefiting from original research carried out in Russia, this book attempts to explain what happened to the nine skiers who lost their lives in what has come to be known as the "Dyatlov Pass Incident."

Book Summary:

The Trek tells the story of David Schachne's adventure in November, 2004, attempting to summit Kala Patthar, a mountain which towers above Everest Base Camp in the Himalayas. At 18,192 feet above sea level, the summit of Kala Patthar offers successful climbers one of the most amazing views of Mount Everest (29,035 feet) without having to put your life at risk by entering the Khumbu Icefall, or by climbing Mount Lhotse or Mount Nuptse. Raised in Brooklyn, NY, Schachne loved visiting the great outdoors as a teenager, going camping and hiking in the Catskills and Adirondacks. Throughout his early adult life, he had a burning desire to go trekking in the Himalayas. He believed going there would make his life more fulfilled. Schachne certainly didn't expect his trek to be a "walk in the park", but he was ill-prepared for what was in store for him. Climbing for hours and hours each day while mentally and physically exhausted; confronting sub-freezing temperatures; dealing with illness, high altitude sickness, piercing headaches, wretched odors, utter filth, bacterial infections, dysentery and more, he endured two weeks of pure, nightmarish misery. In this riveting account of his gut-wrenching trek over fourteen sleepless days and nights, while malnourished, Schachne takes you along on each and every step of his journey. You'll experience the ups and downs of the hills and valleys, and the highs and lows of his personal triumphs and chaotic travails. He flies from Kathmandu in Nepal to the most dangerous airport in the world (Tenzing Hillary Airport), in a town called Lukla, then hikes to Phadking and Namche Bazaar, a virtual flea market at 11,000 feet, then Thyangboche Monastery and then Dingboche, Dzugla, Lobuche and Gorak Shep, before finally attempting the summit. Schachne reveals what originally led him to fall in love with nature, why he was so determined to go to the Himalayas, and why he persevered despite the brutal bodily punishment he experienced. Join Schachne for the most entertaining adventure of your life, as he takes you along on this thrilling, harrowing and laugh and cry-out-loud journey.

Book Summary:

Is it still possible to fake your own death in the twenty-first century? With six figures of student loan debt, Elizabeth Greenwood was tempted to find out. So off she sets on a darkly comic foray into the world of death fraud, where for $30,000 a consultant can make you disappear--but your suspicious insurance company might hire a private detective to dig up your coffin...only to find it filled with rocks. Greenwood tracks down a British man who staged a kayaking accident and then returned to live in his own house while all his neighbors thought he was dead. She takes a call from Michael Jackson (no, he's not dead--or so her new acquaintances would have her believe), stalks message boards for people contemplating pseudocide, and gathers intel on black market morgues in the Philippines, where she may or may not obtain some fraudulent goodies of her own. Along the way, she learns that love is a much less common motive than money, and that making your death look like a drowning virtually guarantees that you'll be caught. (Disappearing while hiking, however, is a way great to go.) Playing Dead is a charmingly bizarre investigation in the vein of Jon Ronson and Mary Roach into our all-too-human desire to escape from the lives we lead, and the men and women desperate enough to give up their lives--and their families--to start again. "Delivers all the lo-fi spy shenanigans and caught-red-handed schadenfreude you're hoping for." --NPR "A lively romp." --The Boston Globe "Grim fun." --The New York Times "Brilliant topic, absorbing book." --The Seattle Times "The most literally escapist summer read you could hope for." --The Paris Review

Book Summary:

In a small wooded lot a busy woman stumbles upon a strange doll the neighbors possibly left. She attempts to reveal who brought the toy to her home, but she uncovers no real leads. Then when a letter turns up asking her to give the doll away as soon as possible, she ends up on the edge of reason as the doll is in the midst of being reclaimed by someone. The doll although small and cuddly resembles a somewhat black entity similar to a doll she keeps in her home, but when a nearby psychic and fortune teller comes to her home asking her to give up the doll to keep her sanity, but she refuses. The stuffed animal then turns out to be more then she bargained for when the bear starts to grow a tail and red eyes. When she discovers those details, she desperately tries to send it away to a pawn shop owner, but the next day he ends up dead, and a new feeling that the stuffed bear may not be what she considered a stuffed cuddly toy anymore. The story focuses on the character of Mary, and the stuffed bear that she suddenly inherits when the doll is left on her doorstep. She finds that although the stuffed bear did have an owner, he ended up in a mental institution, and the bear was simply left behind, either by someone else or the bear itself. She doesn't want to come to the terms that it could have ended up on her doorstep, by itself, but when the tale that the previous owner claimed is finally revealed, she desperately searches for an answer to the horror of Truggle.

Book Summary:

Who among us hasn't treasured memories of yesteryear told to us by our 'elders'? Aleta Miller has gathered vignettes and woven them into a tapestry of life in a Sierra Gold Rush mining town exotically named Port Wine (near Whiskey Diggins and Poker Flat). She has captured the essence of California's pioneer spirit, mining nuggets of real life stories that lay buried under yesteryear's journalism: Two story deep snowdrifts compete with a mountain visitor in a Locomobile. Civil War politics blend in with birth pains of the new California statehood. Downhill ski races lift spirits of beleaguered residents of Port Wine and La Porte, also known as Rabbit Creek. Uncontrollable fires gut reconstructed towns with diabolical regularity. In addition, we meet colorful characters who have touched the hills including Black Bart, Dutch Kate, Bret Harte, the Blue Lake Monster and Sasquatch. There is something for everyone in this delightful read. Aleta Farren Miller, as a young girl, became enamored of California gold country history during occasional visits to the Davis Motor Mine. The mine tunneled into a mountainside within a mile of Port Wine, CA. It was operated by Aleta's cousins Fred and Durward Davis and produced a modest quantity of gold. Aleta was enchanted by the remoteness of the location as well as by the surroundings which have changed very little over the last 100 years. Passing encounters with "old timers" and whimsical poetry adorning grave sites in the Pioneer Cemetery stimulated a growing interest. Many of her relatives and even a pet parrot are buried there. With the help of her mother, Rilla Farren Cross, other family members, the archives of Bancroft Library at U.C. Berkeley, and The Mountain Messenger Newspaper at Downieville, CA, the interest culminated in Aleta investing almost a decade undertaking this collection of what now may be classified as journalistic memorabilia. We are indebted to her instinctive ability to sort out and preserve this remarkable collection of memories. Her own background and personal experiences make her uniquely capable of understanding and synthesizing the insight that she gained from that time in California history.

Book Summary:

"A slow-building murder tale, but the complicated hero and serpentine wrap-up make it a worthy mystery." - Kirkus Review Felix Allaben is a haunted man. Haunted by the memory of his wife, gunned down in a mugging gone awry. Haunted by his responsibilities as a single father of a teenage girl. And, as Bloody Lane opens, haunted by the murder of Curtis Gwynn, an ex-cop whom Allaben had known when both served in the Baltimore Police Department. Gwynn is found dressed in the uniform of a Civil War re-enactor on the hallowed grounds of the Antietam battlefield--shot through the head. Allaben is a special investigator with the Department of Justice. He has been summoned by a shadowy official in Washington to get to the bottom of the crime. Working in tandem with the local sheriff, Felix weaves his way through a maze of leads, lies, and dead ends in his effort to make sense of this first death and of others that unexpectedly follow. In so doing, he comes up against an armed, active, neo-Confederate hate group operating out of a local gun club and bent on domestic terrorism. The suspects are many. Among them are an unstable realtor with whom Gwynn was having an affair; her alcoholic, hot-headed husband; their son, a Civil War enthusiast who's been upset by the unsavory lifestyles of his parents; her brother, a rising politician, and a retired Navy contractor, as well as other members of the aforementioned militia. Bloody Lane is set in and around Frederick, Maryland, a small city with an intriguing past. The infamous Civil War battle of Antietam, fought nearby, yielded the single bloodiest day in American history. The conclusion is both violent and unsettling.

Book Summary:

Fact: In February, 1959, nine Russian college students embarked on a 10 day skiing expedition into the Ural Mountains. They never returned and were later found dead of disturbing and mysterious causes. These events are now simply known as the Dyatlov Pass Incident, named after the leader of the ill fated team, Igor Dyatlov. Because of the nature of the deaths, a criminal inquest was filed. As the facts developed, the circumstances and causes of death became more confusing and baffling, with each new discovery.Even after a half century, no adequate explanation has ever been offered explaining the deaths. The official verdict, registered in 1959, stills stands, “death by unknown compelling force,” a vague and unsatisfying explanation for a scene of endless questions and unknown events that lead to 9 inexplicable and ultimately, horrific deaths. To this day, no one was ever charged with a crime. A tribe of indigenous people, known as the Mansi, have lived in the vast Ural Mountains for centuries. The Mansi feared the mountain where the students had all died. The Mansi name for the mountain is Kholat Syakhl which translates to, the mountain of the dead.A stone monument with the pictures of the nine now sits as a mute testimony at the mouth of the now infamous pass. Mountain of the Dead is the fictionalized story of the events of that year by writer, director Mike Wellins.

Book Summary:

In 1959, nine Russian students set off on a skiing expedition in the Ural Mountains. Their mutilated bodies were discovered weeks later. Their bizarre and unexplained deaths are one of the most enduring true mysteries of our time. Nearly sixty years later, podcast host Nat McPherson ventures into the same mountains with her team, determined to finally solve the mystery of the Dyatlov Pass incident. Her plans are thwarted on the first night, when two trackers from her group are brutally slaughtered. The team's guide, a superstitious man from a neighboring village, blames the killings on yetis, but no one believes him. As members of Nat's team die one by one, she must figure out if there's a murderer in their midst-or something even worse-before history repeats itself and her group becomes another casualty of the infamous Dead Mountain.
