From the Publisher:
The gripping story of young Karana, who survives by herself for eighteen years on a deserted island off the California coast.
Scott O'Dell published his first work for children, the 1961 Newbery Award-winner ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS, when he was 52. Before writing this book O'Dell had many careers, including newspaper journalist and laborer on a citrus ranch. He also wrote several novels for adults. Three of O'Dell's novels for children, THE KING'S FIFTH, THE BLACK PEARL, and SING DOWN THE MOON were named Newbery Honor Books. In 1972 he received the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his body of work. Before his death, he established the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction, an annual prize meant to recognize excellence in historical fiction for children.
