This sentence means that he thought he knew her, as for charted, but suddenly speaking of her bipolar personality, when he thought he knew her, then he soon realized again, that he never knew by refering to her "wilderness" which in this contex is as a not known and confusing land. As he refers as his "territory or land" to his woman.

the sentence "he charted" means that he mapped her, he learned her and "She made wilderness again" means that she changed so the "chart" he had done know was wrong and had to chart again

he charted her, means he mapped her territory,his land ( refering to her wife)He figured his way and paths through the complex women mind and its irregular emotions." he charted" has a nostalgic mood as he remembers something that was good. by the fact the author says "she makes wilderness again" means she changes drastically and without previous warning her mind, her feelings where constantly changing. there is no existent pattern. wilderness is also attractive, certainly atractive for him.

The quote "He Charted" means he started to understand her, he was starting to know her but then "She made wilderness again", all the advance he has done with her was gone, She changed. she is still unknown to him.
