Island Of The Blue Dolphins

Far off the coast of California looms a harsh rock known as the island of San Nicholas. Dolphins flash in the blue waters around it, sea otter play in the vast kep beds, and sea elephants loll on the stony beaches. Here, in the early 1800s, according to history, an Indian girl spent eighteen years alone, and this beautifully written novel is her story. It is a romantic adventure filled with drama and heartache, for not only was mere subsistence on so desolate a spot a near miracle, but Karana had to contend with the ferocious pack of wild dogs that had killed her younger brother, constantly guard against the Aleutian sea otter hunters, and maintain a precarious food supply. More than this, it is an adventure of the spirit that will haunt the reader long after the book has been put down. Karana's quiet courage, her Indian self-reliance and acceptance of fate, transform what to many would have been a devastating ordeal into an uplifting experience. From loneliness and terror come strength and serenity in this Newbery Medal-winning classic. In celebration of the book's 50th anniversary, this edition has an introduction by Lois Lowry, Newbery Medal-winning author of The Giver and Number the Stars.

Shrouded Heritage

This compelling narrative describes the quest of a father and daughter to reveal the true events that inspired Scott O'Dell's most beloved novel, Island of the Blue Dolphins. It also details the life and legacy of the real woman whom O'Dell referred to as Karana in the pages of his fictional masterpiece.This remarkable saga weaves together a captivating story derived from dozens of historic documents. With equal reverence, it also includes accounts of Indigenous People from numerous Southern California tribes who passionately assert their ancestral bond to the actual island that O'Dell dramatized in his novel.During this crusade, bitter conflicts arise as traditional archaeologists are accused of suppressing evidence to allow the alleged illegal exploitation of human remains and sacred artifacts taken from the "Island of the Blue Dolphins." Their challengers are formally-overlooked tribal members who simply wish to rebury their ancestors on that island, which, according to their ancient beliefs, will bring about a reunion with their families in heaven among the Milky Way.
