THE original 1960 edition of this Newberry Award winning novel, which was an inspiration to girls growing up in the 50s and 60s, for its presentation of a resourceful native woman left alone on an island, learning to survive. Beautiful book, and still popular and highly regarded nearly 50 years later.

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!
