Finding Everett Ruess by David Roberts.. I have always thought the idea of wilderness is To Not Go Into There. Case in point: Utah desert, 1934. But then again, what a courageous and astonishing life Everett Ruess disappeared from.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Though readers may be left with niggling doubts—Roberts chronicles many hoaxes with regards to Ruess’ disappearance—in the end, he makes a convincing case. A well-researched, readable look at a complex personality in wilderness exploration."

Kirkus Reviews

"Roberts deftly recounts the development of Ruess's celebrity and the controversies that continue to surround the mystery of his death."
