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.

His search for ultimate beauty and oneness with nature is chronicled in this remarkable collection of letters to family and friends.
