About the Book

In the early 1800's an Indian girl spent eighteen years alone, marooned on an island far off the coast of California. This beautifully written novel is her story. It is a romantic adventure filled with drama and heartache, for not only was mere subsistence on so desolate a spot a near miracle, but Karana had to contend with the ferocious pack of wild dogs that had killed her younger brother, constantly guard against the Aleutian sea otter hunters, and maintain a precarious food supply.
Karana's quiet courage, her Indian self-reliance and acceptance of fate, transform the devastating ordeal into an uplifting experience. From loneliness and terror come strength and serenity in this Newbery Medal-winning classic.
