Bookcover: Finding Everett Ruess: The Life and Unsolved Disappearance of a Legendary Wilderness ExplorerHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.

Book: Finding Everett Ruess: The Life and Unsolved Disappearance of a Legendary Wilderness Explorer by David Roberts


Recommended by: Joseph, Nonfiction Librarian
When Everett Ruess was still in his teens in the early 1930s, he began taking long solo journeys across California and the desert Southwest. Drawn by a love of nature and an obsession with beauty, the young poet and painter led his burros up rocky mountain trails and across scorching deserts. But on one such journey that had taken him into southern Utah, Ruess disappeared forever, leaving only cryptic clues as to his fate. Author David Roberts takes us along Ruess' journeys, eventually becoming part of the continuing search for what happened to the young explorer. Recommended if you enjoyed Krakauer's Into the Wild.

Note: If you like the book or think you might, you may also be interested in seeing some of Everett Ruess' Block Prints on display at the Merrill-Cazier Library on the Utah State University Logan campus until April 29th. The exhibit includes a selection of block prints created by artist and writer Everett Ruess, depicting his travels throughout the western United States in the early 20th century.

Bookcover: Stars and swastikas : the boy who wore two uniformsHere is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: Stars and swastikas : the boy who wore two uniforms by Walter Schröder

Recommended by: Barbara, Library Technical Assistant
Walter Schröder's parents came to the US after WWII. Walter was born in the US and lived in New York until he was seven, when his parents moved back to Germany. At school he had to become part of the Hitler Youth and when he was 15 he was drafted and sent to man Antiaircraft guns. He was captured and soon it was realized that he spoke "Yank" and was used as a translator. When it was found out that he was a US citizen he was drafted into the US Army. What is interesting about the book is that it isn't an everyday WWII memoir, but a great description of life during the Nazi Era and early cold war years. Walter ended up working for the U.S. Defense Department for almost thirty years and was awarded the "Navy Superior Service Medal & Citation" for his contributions.
