Staff Reading Pick
Here 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.
