Everett Ruess

Everett Ruess (3/28/1914 - )

Everett Ruess was an artistic and adventurous young man who travel through the American west in search of natures beauty. Ruess was known for making linoleum prints of landscapes and nature, and was associated with Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange. His prints show scenes from the Monterey Bay coast, the northern California coast, the Sierra Nevada, Utah, and Arizona. Starting in 1931, Ruess traveled by horse and burro through Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado, exploring the high desert of the Colorado Plateau. He rode broncos, branded calves, and investigated cliff dwellings, trading his prints and watercolors to pay his way. On November 20, 1934, Ruess set out alone into the Utah desert, taking two burros as pack animals. He was never seen again.
