5/4/09: Everett Ruess - Found

Salt Lake City, UT – In 1934, a 20-year-old wanderer named Everett Ruess went missing in the lonely red rock country of southern Utah. He was in search of beauty, and his story and his writing and art would go on to achieve mythic status in the American West. Now 75 years later, Everett Ruess' remains have been found. Monday, we'll talk to National Geographic Adventure contributing editor David Roberts and others about the find - and about the mysteries that still remain.
