228pp. Octavo [22 cm] Melon-colored paper over boards with gilt lettering and decorative stamping on the spine and front cover. Very good.

In a very good dust jacket, with fading along the edges and folds, and light edge wear, and a short closed tear in the top edge of the front panel.
From the dust jacket- "Everett Ruess, bold adventurer, artist, writer. He traded prints with Ansel Adams. He studied and lived with Edward Weston, Maynard Dixon, and Dorothea Lange. He tramped around the Sierra Nevada, the California coast, and the desert wilderness of the Southwest, pursuing his dream of ultimate beauty and oneness with nature. Then, in November of 1934, at the age of 21, he mysteriously vanished into the barren Utah desert."
