In the Pacific, there is an island that looks like a big fish sunning itself in the sea. Around it blue dolphins swim, otters play, and sea birds abound. Karana is the Indian girl who lived alone for years on the Island of the Blue Dolphins. Hers is not only an unusual adventure of survival, but also a tale of natural beauty and personal discovery.
Scott O'Dell was born in Los Angeles, California, on May 23, 1898. He attended Occidental College, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Stanford University, and University of Rome. He worked as a technical director for Paramount, a cameraman for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and a book editor of a Los Angeles newspaper before serving in the United States Air Force during World War II. The recipient of numerous book awards, he established the Scott O'Dell award for historical fiction in 1981. He died on October 15, 1989.

"A haunting and unusual story based on the fact that in the early 1800s an Indian girl spent eighteen years alone on a rocky island far off the coast of California . . . A quiet acceptance of fate characterizes her ordeal." School Library Journal, Starred

"O'Dell tells the miraculous story of how Karana forages on land and in the ocean, clothes herself (in a green-cormorant skirt and an otter cape on special occasions), and secures shelter. Perhaps even more startlingly, she finds strength and serenity living alone on the island. This beautiful edition of Island of the Blue Dolphins is enriched with 12 full-page watercolor paintings by Ted Lewin, illustrator of more than 100 children's books, including Ali, Child of the Desert. A gripping story of battling wild dogs and sea elephants, this simply told, suspenseful tale of survival is also an uplifting adventure of the spirit." Amazon.com

"Hi, I am doing my review on Island of the Blue Dolphins. This book is about an indian girl named Karana and her tribe that goes away, and her brother, Ramo gets left behind. My favorite part was the ending. My favorite part was learning that this was about a true story. My least favorite part was when her brother dies. I also learned that she was on the island for 18 years by herself. My favorite character was Rontu-Alu. I would reccommend this book to someone who likes true stories that are sad with happy endings. This book is about bravery, confindence and survival."

"I read this book at age 11 and am now close to the forty mark but when girlfriends asked me cynically whether any book had ever had the power to change my life. I instantly said yes, and that book was Island of the Blue Dolphins! It is a book that not only features a girl as a strong character but it celebrates her resoursefullness, humanity, earth -conscious ingenuity, and hard work. She can create what she needs with her own two hands and think problems through to a solution. I believe she was the first real, non-comic, heroine I had ever read of and in my mind she is still the best! "

"I'm 11 years old and I read "Island Of The Blue Dolphins" when I was 10. I think one of the reasons why I loved this book so much is that it was so discriptive. The author, Scott O'Dell told all the incidents in great detail. I also loved it because it was so realistic. It was like I was Karana and all the things that were really happening to her, were happening to me instead!
I loved this book very much!"
 
"Karana is alone on St Nicolas's island,left to survive after her
father is killed and her brother dies at the hands of a pack of wild dogs. Beautifully shot and with Karana,the heroine,triumphing over
all odds,it has a strong storyline.

However the book is easier to digest than the film.

I think kids today will enjoy the story in book form.I must
say though,that the film has quite a few deaths in it,although
the scenery is breathtaking and the direction exciting.

I can recommend this book.'
