    Everett Ruess PDF/EPUB ñ Paperback everett ebok, ruess book, Everett Ruess EpubIf forced to use one word on this book fascinating comes to mind The book itself consists of letters by Everett Reuss from the age of 16 to his disappearance as a 20 year old in the Utah desert in 1934 This is not spoiling the book as the author explains his disappearance in both the preface and first chapter of the book The author writes in the preface that Everett “was a highly complex young man” and that is shown by the letters that he wrote to friends and family Everett Ruess began his wanderings at a young age He was 16 At that age the vast majority of boys and girls have on their minds than the determination to be an outsider free spirit Study their peer group and the opposite sex is the norm Everett was different He knew that At one point he writes “My tragedy is that I don’t fit in with any type of people” He writes along the same theme p

    Everett Ruess PDF/EPUB ñ Paperback everett ebok, ruess book, Everett Ruess EpubRead years ago and something made it come to mind today A wonderful and heartbreaking collection of letters written by a young artist wandering the Southwest Merged reviewAs I was reading Into the Wild I kept thinking how much Chris McCandless' story reminded me of this biography about Everett Ruess No surprise when Into the Wild had a whole chapter about that very same comparison I loved this story especially reading all the letters Everett wrote during his time traveling around the Southwest in the 1930's Both books truly touched some part of me that yearns to leave all the trappings of our consumerist society behind I thought anyone who read this would understand how I felt but I distinctly remember Rick surprising me with his non interest in the book He doesn't even remember reading it now

    Everett Ruess PDF/EPUB ñ Paperback everett ebok, ruess book, Everett Ruess EpubReading Everett's letters puts you right back in the restless questioning that we often face around age 20 where am I going? What kind of people do I enjoy being around? How do I want to spend my time and energy and what are the forces that inspire me most to do so? His musings put me right back in that era of life showcasing the naivety of youth the struggle to find a place and people that make one feel at home and the harsh questioning of the forces that shape a life As such reading the letters is an experience that ranges from exasperating to nostalgic to thought provoking In Everett's case however this is tempered by that fact his letters are written far eloquently than I ever could have hoped to write at that age and the backdrop of his wanderings are far wilder and awe insp

    Everett Ruess PDF/EPUB ñ Paperback everett ebok, ruess book, Everett Ruess EpubI reread W L Rusho's Everett Ruess Vagabond for Beauty the letters of Ruess and the story of the various searches for him after he disappeared in 1934 This book is one of my favorites and even prompted many years ago a hike down into Davis Gulch to follow Ruess' last trail as it turns out he was miles away on the other side of the Colorado when he was murdered His writings about and passion for the canyon country remain a testament to the strong feelings this country evokes
