Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Scott O'Dell won the Newbery Medal in 1961 for his unforgettable novel Island of the Blue Dolphins, based on the true story of a Nicoleño Indian girl living in solitude between 1835 and 1853 on San Nicolas Island, only seventy miles off the coast of Southern California. His quietly gripping tale of Karana's survival, strength, and courage — and vivid descriptions of island life — has captivated readers for decades. This paperback edition features an introduction by the two-time Newbery Medal recipient Lois Lowry. A classic!

Synopsis:

The gripping story of young Karana, who survives by herself for eighteen years on a deserted island off the California coast.

Synopsis:

Newbery Medal winner Island of the Blue Dolphins is considered one of the greatest children's books ever written. This story of survival is as haunting and beautiful today as it was when it first appeared in print. And now, just in time to celebrate the book's fiftieth anniversary, Sandpiper is honored to bring a new paperback edition of this masterpiece to the next generation. With gorgeous packaging and an introduction by Newbery Medal winner Lois Lowry, this version will guarantee Karana's story inspires readers for decades to come.
