He was one of the earth's oddlings-one of the wandering few who deny restraint and scorn inhibition. His life was a quest for the new and the fresh.

Everett Ruess, the young poet and artist who disappeared into the desert canyonlands of Utah in 1934, has become widely known posthumously as the spokesman for the spirit of the high desert. Many have been inspired by his intense search for adventure, leaving behind the amenities of a comfortable life. His search for ultimate beauty and oneness with nature is chronicled in this remarkable collection of letters to family and friends.

There are thousands of persons really interested in Everett Ruess, the young man whose disappearance in the Utah desert has never been solved. This book combines his letters to relatives and friends, giving deep insight into his love of beauty and his hunt for it in the isolated areas of Utah, Arizona and Colorado. Added to the letters in Rusho's book are the journals he wrote almost daily during his travels alone through the Southwest. The journals give us a graphic picture of his learned abilities on the trail--and some things he had trouble learning. The journals are more down-to-earth, dealing with the nitty-gritty of a young man learning many new ways to cope with almost inaccessible areas, which even now are often not explored. The reader, however, should be warned that someone had erased many entries in the journals, which might be out of keeping with perceptions of what would damage images of Ruess' personality. But no one studying Ruess should be without this book, or the excellent Finding Everett Ruess by David Roberts. A real plus in the Vagabond for Beauty book are excellent photos of Ruess on the trail and at home as a young person.

fascinating story of a young man who disappeared not far from where I sit right now. Very well written.

For anyone who loves the rugged back country of Southern Utah this is a must read. Unbelievable stories from letters of an eccentric guy in the unique outlaw and Mormon country of America. Makes one want to explore it as Everett did over and over. Where can I find a couple of mules and get started?

I had not heard of Everett Ruess before promoting the thought that
"The secret to youth is to fill your mind with beauty." Then, a
friend sent this book containing his letters my way. At first, I was disappointed reading what a seemed a laundry list of mundane items requested from his family by a youth seeking truth. He wandered up the coast of California from his home in Hollywood. A casual interest emerged as I live in Los Angeles and have frequented many of the places described eloquently by this artist on the move. Soon I became engaged by his reflections upon places he observed in the 1930,s that are now part of our National Parks. When he arrived at Yosemite he became as jubilant as the ecstatic John Muir describing the "Range of Light." But, his poetic and lyrical descriptions of the southwest deserts, vermillion buttes and purple canyons are what placed me squarely in his camp of admirers. Even Edward Abbey, our most revered chronicler of the desert beauty, held Everett the young wanderer with "the crazy lust to probe the heart" in esteem. For me Everret's words were like an arrow finding its mark. Even though his voice was that of a young man with a bit too much disdain for poor working stiffs with no imagination in their life, he was generous to all he met. I am so pleased I met Everett through this collection of letters published in 1940 and cherish the connection with a kindred spirit so willing to do without, so that he might sing the wilderness song.

Always I shall be the one who loved the wilderness
Swaggered and softly crept between the mountain peaks,
I shall listen long to the sea's brave music:
I shall sing my song above the shriek of desert winds - Everett Ruess

After five years of wandering, at the age of 24, Everett went missing in 1934. His last letter gave no indication that he did not intend to return from explorations in Davis Gulch now flooded by Lake Powell. It is left for us to conjecture why his body was never found.

Everett Ruess was well on his way to being the John Muir of the desert Southwest long before Edward Abbey ever wrote "Desert Solitaire", when he disappeared in the Southern Utah desert in 1934. He was young, 19 years old, with a penchant for wandering the Navajo Nation with a couple of burros and a pack. The book is made up mostly of his letters to family and friends, and his descriptions of the Southwest are very well written, although tending towards the purple prose. From his writings and art, he was clearly a sensitive young man of considerable talent, but about 3/4 through the book his attitude of exalted sensitivity to life, along with his naive and somewhat holier-than-thou outlook, really wears thin. Yes, I understand the need for young people to 'find themselves', but somebody, like his parents, needed to sit the guy down and have a reality chat with him. Nobody did that, and to me, I found his disappearance to be an inevitable consequence of his actions, made all the more clear by his own writings. Still, it's an interesting story and people are still looking for his remains today.

lovely book.

This book is a super easy read that inspires wanderlust effortlessly. He should definitely be a household name for anyone that has a love affair with nature/the outdoors.
Through his many letters to family and friends, young Everett Ruess crosses the paths of Dorothea Lange, Edward Weston and Ansel Adams. He brings to life his visits to Big Sur and the wilderness of the Utah desert with startling prose, not intended for publication but all the more powerful for that. Any lover of Kerouac, early western movies or desolate places will enjoy his reports from beyond the limits of civilisation.
