The Islands of The Blue Dolphins
The Island of the Blue Dolphins, by Scott O’Dell, is an historical fiction novel takes you on a journey of a Native American girl’s survival. The protagonist, Karana, faces many difficult challenges stranded on her island. Whether it’s fighting off wild dogs or hiding from the Aleuts, Karana struggles to survive.Luckily she has a few friends to keep her from being lonely. Eventually, Karana gets rescued by Spanish missionaries after being stranded on her island for six years. This meloncholic story is full of adventure and the struggle to survive. I believe this is a very exciting and well written book for all ages.
