EVERETT RUESS A VAGABOND FOR BEAUTY PDF

McCandless and his journey both lack sincerity and commitment and as a result his death was more pathetic than poetic or tragic. Ruess, on the other hand was a graceful genius and an artist who really meant it. He was driven by some kind of spiritual pursuit deeper than I can even comprehend. The kid vanished in the I picked up "Into the Wild" thinking that Christopher McCandless might have something in common with Everett Ruess, the subject of this book. The kid vanished in the desert near the four corners in the s, but not before leaving the trail of profound letters included in this book. Excellent read, especially if you have spent any time in the landscape where he died.

His last known camp was in the Escalante River region of southern Utah, a place of bare rock, vertical cliffs, plunging canyons, and soaring mesas. A dreamer, an adventurer, an artist and a poet who paints a landscape with words so beautiful..

I have a respect for Everett, but also a slight disrespect. His "life" as he called it, consisted of spending months at a time in the wild, at the mercy of the good people around him. He would meet people in the wild, and get invited to meals. Or trade paintings for meals or try working for food.
