Item Description...
The adventures of a young Indian girl as she faces life alone on an island

Publishers Description

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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Enchanting and riveting, this story will stay with you  Aug 27, 2007
I have to smile when reading these other reviews that say this book was one of their favorites as a child. It also was mine. I've read so many books, that most times the memory of the details within them grow dim, but not with "Island of the Blue Dolphins". I can still picture the breathtaking beauty of the island where Karana spent her growing years. I still remember her joys and trials of living alone for so long, after everyone had left. Her ingenuity and strength still amazes me. I can't wait until my children are old enough so I can enjoy this Newberry book with them. It's definitely one in a million.
Island Of The Blue Dolphins!  Aug 19, 2007
When I was on vacation at Martha's Vinyard I went to the book store and bought Island Of The Blue Dolphins for myself and I loved it!! I love it so much because of it's beautiful discriptions and details that I can picture in my mind. This book is beautifully written and has wonderful detail of natural survival of hunting, and making friends (Rontu and Rontu-Aru and the English girl Tutok, the fox and Won-a-nee the otter). How many wonderful and beautiful adventures of exciting survival can one indian girl have? I am 10 years old and recommend this book to whoever loves reading and is a fan of detail and beauty!!!!!!!!
May be too adult for 10 or 11 yr olds  Aug 15, 2007
My 11 yr old enjoyed this book but says it was too sad for her taste. Kids!
good  Aug 13, 2007
THIS BOOK WAS FOR MY GRANDDAUGHTER. She liked it very much. I am looking for some other books for 7th graders do you have any suggestions?
Tale of enlightenment   Aug 7, 2007
I saw this in movie form when I was a child, and I fell in love with it. Reading a list of wanted books for a Camelmobile in Africa, I found this title on the list, so I bought it to send for a donation. I read the book before sending to Africa, and I wept. This is a beautiful story of courage, heartache, strength, love, forgiveness, -- and enlightenment that we *can* live in harmony with all animals on Earth - in fact, that we are happier and far more content when we realize that all living beings belong here and have value. The tale is not sentimental, but, rather, written in the tone that one would expect from an Indian girl. In its simplicity, this book soaks into one's psyche and stays put. It is sure to make anyone who reads it become a better human being.
