Terry Russell, the older of the two brothers who authored On the Loose, learned about wilderness early . Renny hiked 45 miles to safety. The irony was Terry Russell never got to see his own book in print, he died 2 months before it was published by The Sierra Club.

Terry Russell, the older of the two brothers who authored On the Loose, learned about wilderness early, especially about the Sierra Nevada, the Pacific shore, and the Plateau province of Colorado and Utah. He was a brilliant student at the University of California, Berkeley, and a staunch advocate of free speech there and elsewhere. He passed away in 1965 on a trip down the Green River, shortly before the original publication of On the Loose.

On the Loose is a journey through the American West, led by two adventurous brothers, Terry and Renny Russell. It is a chronicle of triumph and tragedy-the triumph of gaining an insight about oneself through an understanding of the natural world; the tragedy of seeing its splendor increasingly threatened by people who don't know or don't care. The color and black-and-white photographs, all taken by the authors, capture Yosemite, Point Reyes, the High Sierra, the Great Basin, and Glen Canyon in the 1950s and 1960s.

This is the epic creation of two young brothers, Terry and Renny Russell, who grew up in the 1960's nascent stage of the Environmental Movement. They were young adventurers with an extreme case of Wanderlust that led them on innumerable remote treks through the mountains and deserts of California and the Southwest. Their journeys are embellished by their photographs and quotes from authors from Thoreau to Joyce. Steve Mcqueen's quote is the most succinct of all though:
" I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth".
In June of 1965, the brothers set out for a raft trip down the Green River in Utah, a few days later their raft flipped in a rapid and Terry Russell drowned. Renny hiked 45 miles to safety. The irony was Terry Russell never got to see his own book in print, he died 2 months before it was published by The Sierra Club.

I was about to give my original copy of this book to my son, thinking it was out of print. I wanted to share the insights and the beauty of this book as a way of sharing my love of all places wild. Something made me look to see if copies were still available and was thrilled when I saw that it was back in print for a new generation to experience. Even though Glen Canyon is "gone", and many of the places these boys experienced are covered (or nearly covered) with masses of humanity, there is still the spirit of this book that lives on in the places that are left. I first read this book in high school and it definitely had a huge impact on my life. I read it, and reread it so many times that it became a part of who I am. One of my favorite quotes in the book was by Steve McQueen; "I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth". That pretty much describes me to this day! If you have any love at all for wild places, read this book. It's beautiful, and it will reach places inside of you that have been dormant, just waiting for the right catalyst to bring them alive.

an old favorite, it's an inspiring book for the wanderer's soul; my sierra club original publication's pix are more vibrant than these which are probably second generation. still, a great book to have on your shelf.

This is probably the most influential book I've ever read growing up in Western Washington. While my parents and their love of the outdoors is undoubtedly the main reason I live in Crested Butte and have ascribed to the collective consciousness of Crested Butte, CO throughout my adult life, this book gave life to the emotions of a young man exploring the American West. During those explorations, I saw the beauty of nature as well as the horrors we were visiting on nature - and "On The Loose" set those emotions into a poetic, immensely important (to me anyway) book.

If you've ever wondered what to give a young, aspiring outdoorsperson to give wings to a love of nature, you could hardly do better than choosing "On the Loose".

It is a pleasure to once again have a copy of this simple but endearing and emotionally powerful book on my bookshelf. It was one of Sierra Club's best and still has very significant relevance today.

I love this book. Every time I read it I learn something new.
This book inspires me to get out in nature, to do more and be stronger, learn more, see more places, read more.
It is the first book I will give as a gift.

One of my all-time favorites. Got it originally as a gift from my 11th grade teacher in 1969. Now out of print. Used as gift to my up north neighbors.
This book brings back many good memories. This replaces a copy which had wandered away from my book case, just like the young lads....Dave
