it was amazing
Read in August, 2009

Don't know if there's anyone I associate with more than this cat. Everett was the pioneer back in the early 1900's who set the tone for the adventurer in all of us. He's the reason Chris McCandless ever set out to Alaska in, "Into The Wild" - A brilliant philosopher, an amazing writer, a great poet, a wonderful human being, an explorer, adventurer, and seeker of life, truth and happiness.

Bob I just finished Into The Wild and although I agree the author spoke of Everett's adventures, I did not see where Chris had or for that matter had even considered them. Thus, I would not completely agree or respectfully disagree with your statement. I am off today to purchase this book on Ruess to further explore the American west as seen by these pioneering souls.
