    Finding Everett Ruess is the definitive biography of the artist, writer, and eloquent celebrator of the wilderness whose bold solo explorations of the American West and mysterious disappearance in the Utah desert at age 20 have earned him a large and devoted cult following.

    Amazon Customer says: "Very much worth checking out."

    What did you like best about Finding Everett Ruess? What did you like least?

    I was looking forward to this book on Ruess. The performer is horrible. I forced myself to get through the "Forward" but could not abide any more of the snake like voice of Arthur Morey. I will avoid any other performances by this reader. I gave the story three stars because I could not stand to listen long enough to review it. This review form required a response.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Never arrived.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Arthur Morey?

    Anyone! Daffy Duck?


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    "In mid-July of 1879, John Muir sailed for the first time through the sheer-walled fjords of Alaska's Inside Passage. 'Never before this,' he wrote, 'had I been embosomed in scenery so hopelessly beyond description.' During the previous 15 years, Muir had vanished into the north woods of Canada, walked a thousand miles from Kentucky to the Gulf of Mexico, and nested himself in the granite heart of California's Sierra Nevada mountains. Wild nature burned with volcanic intensity in the core of John Muir's soul."

    What did you like best about Travels in Alaska? What did you like least?

    The images Muir paints are poignant. Some of his stories are entertaining. The narration is horrid. I had to play it back at half speed to understand it. Then it had an echo!


    What didn???t you like about Noah Waterman???s performance?

    His speech is incredibly fast! I have never complained about narration, or anything, before.


    Did Travels in Alaska inspire you to do anything?

    No
