Even at work, I read the whole thing without stopping. That was incredibly interesting. I really hope there is a book written about this family and their discovery.

The bottom of the article it sites the sources including a book from 1994 called Lost in Taiga. which is about the family.

Yes :iiam: there is life without technology so I guess :busted: .

Though the true question is could you go without human contact other than your folks almost all your life?

Very interesting though.
