My Abandonment by Peter RockRead about another entry on the list.
Peter Rock’s My Abandonment goes deep into the psyche of a young woman coming-of-age, raised as much by the land around her as her mentally unstable father. Based on the true story of a father and daughter in Portland, Oregon, who lived for years hidden in Forest Park, a 5,000 acre urban wilderness, with only minimal social interactions in the city at large. When they’re discovered by a lost runner and separated by police, it’s civilization v. wilderness at its most heart-wrenching.
