Introduction by John Nichols. Afterword by Edward Abbey. Illustrated with black & white photographs and reproductions of Everett Ruess's woodblock prints and paintings. This massive hardbound edition combines Bud Rusho's classic book on Everett Ruess: A Vagabond For Beauty with Everett Ruess's previously unpublished Wilderness Journals. The text also incorporates almost verbatim the original text of the 1940 On Desert Trails With Everett Ruess. Includes many never before published photographs of Everett Ruess and his circle of friends, including Dorothea Lange's famous photo of the desert vagabond, and Everett Ruess's woodcut block prints and paintings as well. The definitive volume on Everett Ruess. The afterword is an original sonnet about Everett Ruess by Edward Abbey.
