Island of the Blue Dolphins

By Scott O'Dell (17)

Scott O’Dell’s best known work, and a Newbery Medal award-winning novel, Island of the Blue Dolphins is a tour-de-force, set within a true, historical context that lends the tale authenticity. Karana, the daughter of the Chief of Ghalas-at, lives on the Island of Blue Dolphins, a much-loved sanctuary. The novel begins with the arrival of Russian hunters, the Aleuts, who wish to hunt the sea otter that populate the island, giving in exchange goods to the native Indians. When the Aleuts renegade on their promise, a battle of violent proportions breaks out, and men are lost on both sides, with Karana’s people suffering the most tragic of deaths, as Karana’s Chief father is killed. When the new Chief seeks out a new land for the tribe to inhabit, Karana’s younger brother, Ramo, is left behind, and rather than leave her brother to brave the wild on his own, Karana jumps off the ship, returning to the island. Karana proceeds to live on the deserted island for 18 more years, braving wild dogs, the tragic death of her brother, and the return of the Aleuts. Honing her survival instincts, the young girl blossoms into a mature and strong woman who faces the elements independently and bravely. O’Dell has crafted an astoundingly poignant and beautiful portrait of a strong female character, whose strength is nurtured by a deep fortitude that will inspire readers.
