Elizabeth | 4 comments I'm searching for a book I read a few times as a teen in the late 70s (it was probably published earlier in that decade or possibly the 60s). It was about a teen boy who runs away and lives in the Trinity or Siskiyou wilderness in far Northern California on his own for something like a year? He made occasional trips to town by crossing a ledge over a waterfall and hiking for miles. He had previously camped in the area with his father I think.
