Product Details

Praise

“An irresistible read . . . a remarkable book . . . Roberts makes the mystery of Ruess’s evanescent existence more compelling than ever.”—Jon Krakauer, from the foreword

“Everett Lives! If not in a desert canyon, then at least among the pages where David Roberts brings the young man’s life and legend all together: his writings and art, his kinship with nature, his love for adventure and beauty, and the yet-evolving mystery of his disappearance. Count me one among many inspired by a young adventurer who lived in beauty and left us too soon. May we never stop wandering.”—Aron Ralston, author of Between a Rock and a Hard Place and subject of the film 127 Hours

“Anyone intrigued by the Ruess phenomenon will be enthralled with Roberts’ review of the young man’s biography, the stature of his artistic achievements and unrealized potential, and efforts to find and eventually memorialize him. . . . This is sure to appeal to fans of wilderness wanderers.”Booklist

“Absorbing . . . [a] readable look at a complex personality in wilderness exploration.”Kirkus Reviews

“Roberts deftly . . . captures the complexity of his subject.”Publishers Weekly
