Island of the Blue Dolphins Author:Scott O'Dell Records the courage and self-reliance of an Indian girl who lived alone for eighteen years on an isolated island off the California coast when her tribe emigrated and she was left behind.
What a wondeful book! It was sad and yet inspirational. This young woman has so much inner strength and wisdom and an abundance of hope and optimism. Through tragedy after tragedy she just keeps on going simply for the sake of meeting the next day head-on. Loved it loved it loved it!
A wonderful tale of self-reliance and survival. I read this book in elementary school and it's one of those stories that has stayed with me all these years. It's a great story for youngsters especially girls.
