Height 1079 was the name of the mountain where the nine members of the Dyatlov trekking group perished in 1959. The bizarre circumstances of their death and the ensuing frenzy surrounding the incident brought to attention the original name given to the place by the local Mansi people – Kholat Syakhl, or Dead (Barren) Mountain. Until now, there has been no plausible explanation of what actually happened on that fateful night of February 1, 1959. This book offers a startling new theory, based on well-documented evidence rather than wild speculations, that finally ties together all of known facts about the Dyatlov mystery into a credible sequence of causes and effects.
