Dead Mountain by Donnie Eichar

I was looking for suggestions for a new adventure book to read and posted so on Instagram and a follower responded telling me to check out the Hike Like a Woman Adventure Book Club. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one who turns to reading when actual adventuring is not possible AND not only am I not the only one, but there’s a whole group dedicated to reading adventure books!

Dead Mountain: The Untold True Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident is about a group of college students working towards a mountaineering certification, go missing in the Ural Mountains and turn up dead in 1959. What happened to them remained a mystery until Donnie Eichar’s investigation turned up the answer. It’s a detective novel / real life story / adventure book all rolled into one.

Donnie Eichar does a great job of telling what happened to the students as well as about his journey to find out the truth. I highly recommend it. I also recommend checking out the Hike Like a Woman Adventure Book Club too – if you join the Facebook Group you can discuss that month’s book with other members!
