Say That I Kept My Dream . . ."
by Hugh Lacy
Wherever poets, adventurers and wanderers of the Southwest gather, the story of Everett Ruess will be told. His name like woodsmoke, conjures far horizons.
Everett left Kayenta, Arizona, November 11, 1934, to write, paint and explore among a group of ancient Indian cliff dwellings. His last letter to his parents in Los Angeles explained that he would be unable to communicate for ten weeks. Alone with his paints, books and two burros, he disappeared into what is probably the most uninhabited, unvisited section of the United States.
He never came back.
