Since the sea is not yours, why do I have to give you any part?" "The sea which surrounds the Island of the Blue Dolphins belongs to us," answered my father. He spoke softly as he did when he was angry. From here to the coast of Santa Barbara-twenty leagues away?"

It seems quite improbable but depicts the girl as quite a resourceful girl, as she lived her Robinson Crusoe existence. It reads easily and I even found it a bit poignant,, particularly when her dog-which she had tamed from the feral state-dies.

I read this as a child in grade school. Gobbled it up actually. I am now 53 and decided to read it again and it is still just as good as it was then. The imagery brought about by the writing is amazingly good, and you begin to feel almost a kinship with this girl. After reading it, I Googled the book and found a wealth of information about the book, the actual island, and the real story of this girl, who was a middle-aged woman by the end of the book. The island and the story of the "Lost Woman of San Nicolas" has actually been extensively studied in colleges, and archaeological expeditions have been conducted, where many artifacts were found. This book is a must read for kids, and even kids who don't like to read will likely be caught up in the story.

I can't believe that I've lived nearly half a century (gasp!) without reading this classic book. I escaped it in my childhood when many of my friends were reading it. After all, it was a classic, and I couldn't be bothered with those old tomes. I escaped it throughout the duration of my teaching career because I was too busy plowing through the latest and greatest shiny stars of the publishing world. My kids will be reading and discussing either/or ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS and HATCHET during our January book club, and I'm thrilled to have nudged this one their way. We all need Karana in our lives.

This was my favorite book as a youth. It was fun finding it and reading it again from an adult perspective. The story is engaging, well written and is loosely based on the life of a woman who actually lived alone on an island off the California coast, La Isla de San Nicolas from1835 to1853, and came to be known as The Lost Woman of San Nicolas. Little is really known about her life due to her strange language, which no one could understand. It did not bear similarity to any known languages. In the postlog of the book, O’Dell describes the woman’s life at the Santa Barbara Mission from the time that she was “rescued” to her death.
This is an excellent book for children in fourth through eighth grades. Girls will love the descriptions of the self-made clothing and jewelry that she wore. Examples of these garments and the jewelry are or were on exhibit in the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles

I saw this beautiful old movie on television as a kid and I never forgot it. I am so happy to discover this wonderfully written book of heartbreak and survival. I purchased this for my 13 year old granddaughter and she absolutely loves it. She explained that this book made her more aware of how blessed and fortunate she is. She cried many times throughout the story of this beautiful Native American girl and her family, but finshed with a more grateful and gracious awareness of life and courage to endure difficult times.

Book is paperback and easy to read. Fast shipping.

It's not historically accurate but it's still a great story. I think every young girl should read this. It teaches girls to be strong, and what society expects from you is often not what is best for you. For example, there's a part where she needs to build some kind of weapon to protect herself. She's afraid to do so because she's been taught that females are not allowed. She thinks something bad will happen to her if she does it. Then, she overcomes this fear out of necessity.

I really think I am the kind of strong, independent woman I am because I grew up reading books like this. I have a niece now and I've already got a list of books I want her to read when she's older. This was one of the first I added to the list.

This is the book that fueled my 4th grader to read every book she could get her hands on. Then she started writing and is absolutely amazing at it. She’s in college now. This book actually was a turning point in her life. Just ordered it for my 8.5 year old but I think she’s not ready for it yet. She’s just finishing 2nd grade and she is advanced in reading but I think not mature enough for the book. Maybe in 6 months or a year.

I bought this to re-read because it was a childhood favorite. My 14 year old son picked it up before I could and he plowed through it in a few days.
Island of the Blue Dolphins is a cult classic. I wish they'd make it into a movie.
This is still a great story for all ages. I reviewed this book for my local news in the 1960's. I loved it then and love it now. The heroine of this story is buried at the Santa Barbara Mission. If you visit the Mission, stop by her humble resting place.
