Seventy-seven years after disappearing from the face of the earth, Everett Ruess has become somewhat of a cult figure. For five years, during the early part of the 1930s, he wandered the Southwest, by himself, using two burros. He was quite young starting at age fifteen. Ruess loved the outdoors so and was enraptured by the wilderness. He wrote, painted and did engravings about it. In 1934, Ruess vanished leaving no traces behind him.
The book is a terrific story of an unknown character who has quite a following. It's extremely well-written. Search the DCLS catalog
