The Island of the Blue Dolphins (book)

This is a great story that captures you in a new world. This is what it's about.

In the Pacific there is an Island shaped as a fish sunning itself in the sea. Around it blue dolphins swim, otters play, and sea lions and sea birds abound. Once, Indians also lived on the the Island. When they left and sailed to the east, one girl was left behind.

This is the story of Karana, the Indian girl who lived alone for years on the Island of the Blue Dolphins. Year after year she watched one season turn into another. She waited for somebody to come return her to her people, in the meantime she has to perform the necessary skills to survive. Although it turns out to be much more of a story than that.

This book was written by Scott O' Dell
