really liked it

If you liked Jon Krauker's "Into the Wild" this book might appeal to you. Another young man (in the 1930s) also had a desire to live in the wilderness. This book is interesting because many of Ruess's letters, artwork, journals, and so on exist are are often quoted from. Off and on over the years, there has been interest and even cult followings about Ruess. Would he have matured into a great writer or naturalist? Did he achieve what we all often dream about: explore, write, draw, and live without the boundaries of time and responsibilities? There are no resolutions or happy endings. For some, that is the happiest ending of all. Everett Ruess will live on forever in the imaginations of many.
