Does anyone have an extra copy of this book they would be willing to sell? I didn't get it in time before they were sold out by Mr. Gilbert. : (

Haha, to clarify, I don't believe in the yeti/aliens/supernatural explanations either. That's why I'm posted about this book. Apparently it looks at the incident and explains what most likely happened (which do not include any conspiracy/supernatural theories). The author talked with people who were at the crime scene, as well as that one hiker who got sick and left before the untimely death of his friends. It looks to be an interesting read.

If you're interested, this is a little trailer of the book: http://youtu.be/FCOTZTdUEAw

This thread has dug up my previous interest in the incident and I did some internet digging tonight. Apparently there is a documentary filmmaker who made it his journey to go to Russia and 'get to the bottom' of the story. He published a book called Dead Mountain: The Untold True Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident. It seems to be a honest review of the case (including speaking to the one hiker who bailed before the incident), rather than some of those conspiracy theories (The Russian Yeti -- as suggested by Discovery Channel).  I found a good excerpt of the book, if you're interested, check it out: https://www.sendspace.com/file/mgburh

I read about this incident a few years ago and also found it quite interesting.

I wouldn't find this easily explainable by weather -- as the campers ripped themselves out of the tent to get away (from what I remember).

Freaky!

I have to agree with you edubs31. I think the reason the docu came about is that MANY people remember their names, enough for this site, many books, and many other dedicated spaces.

Does any one know where Helen Rappaport was filed speaking to camera?
I asked her the same. It's the set of The King's Speech! Now the location of that specifically, I am not sure.

D'aww : D
Thanks mate.

If anyone has any trouble, PM me and I'll do my best to help!

Laura, have any links to share on how one would best go about setting that up? I'm in the States and eager to see this...there has to be a way.
Absolutely! Sorry about that, I should have done that when I posted about it. My apologies.

Gatrell's book is on one of my earlier posts. He also wrote the book "A Whole Empire Walking" dealing with refugees in Russia during WW I
Sorry - Couldn't find it, that's why I posted it. My bad.

Another great book is "Russia's First World War: A Social and Economic History " by Peter Gatrell. I had to read it during my undergrad and always found it quite interesting
