9780393075168: Within This Wilderness
From the Publisher:

In 1969, Feenie Ziner’s 16–year–old son “fell out of the world,” running away from home and settling into a solitary life in the untracked Canadian wilderness. “Any kid who had gone to the trouble of putting a whole continent between himself and his family could count on their never showing up at his doorstep.” But in 1973 that’s just where the author did show up, undertaking the journey—arduous emotionally as well as physically—to rediscover her son. Ziner’s anatomy of the relations between parents and grown children, her sensitivity to the alarming innocence of even the most mature youth, and her splendid writing reward the reader throughout, and her unsparing appraisal of her own noble confusion is both moving and magnanimous. Originally published in 1978.

Review:

“... completely absorbing, a convincing adventure with a very perceptive woman.” -- May Sarton

Within This Wilderness “is poignant and revealing.” -- Studs Terkel
