Abstract:

Examines the extraordinary life of legendary backcountry ranger Randy Morgenson and his mysterious disappearance in California's unforgiving Sierra Nevada. Over the course of 28 summers in this craggy wilderness, Morgenson became a celebrated ranger in the National Park Service. For Morgenson, who as a young man honed his mountaineering skills in the Himalayas, this was more than a job--it was a calling. He became fiercely devoted to preventing outside forces from encroaching on the wilderness he loved. But over the years, the isolation took its toll, and he grew increasingly estranged from wife and friends. When he went missing without a trace in Kings Canyon National Park, where he had long patrolled, many suspected suicide or foul play. Blehm's reconstruction of a desperate search-and-rescue operation woven with Morgenson's biography takes readers deep into the heart of the High Sierra and into the world of the backcountry rangers.--From publisher description.
