Island of the Blue Dolphins
by Scott O'Dell
The book is based on the real-life story of a 12-year-old American Indian girl, Karana. In the early 1800s, she was stranded on a small island off the coast of California. Karana faced grave dangers and survived, in isolation, for 18 years before leaving the island to live in the Santa Barbara Mission.
