Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell,Sara L. Schwebel Summary

This is the first authoritative edition of one of the most significant childrenÕs books of the twentieth century. Winner of the 1961 Newbery Medal,ÊIsland of the Blue DolphinsÊtells the story of a girl left alone for eighteen years in the aftermath of violent encounters with Europeans on her home island off the coast of Southern California. This special edition includes two excised chapters, published here for the first time, as well as a critical introduction and essays that offer new background on the archaeological, legal, and colonial histories of Native peoples in California.ÊSara L. Schwebel explores the composition history and editorial decisions made by author Scott OÕDell that ensured the success ofÊIsland of the Blue DolphinsÊat a time when second-wave feminism, the civil rights movement, and multicultural education increasingly influenced which books were taught. This edition also considers how readers might approach the book today, when new archaeological evidence is emerging about the ÒLone Woman of San Nicolas Island,Ó on whom OÕDellÕs story is based, and Native peoples are engaged in the reclamation of indigenous histories and ongoing struggles for political sovereignty.

Shrouded Heritage by Thomas a Holm Summary

This compelling narrative describes the quest of a father and daughter to reveal the true events that inspired Scott O'Dell's most beloved novel, Island of the Blue Dolphins. It also details the life and legacy of the real woman whom O'Dell referred to as Karana in the pages of his fictional masterpiece.This remarkable saga weaves together a captivating story derived from dozens of historic documents. With equal reverence, it also includes accounts of Indigenous People from numerous Southern California tribes who passionately assert their ancestral bond to the actual island that O'Dell dramatized in his novel.During this crusade, bitter conflicts arise as traditional archaeologists are accused of suppressing evidence to allow the alleged illegal exploitation of human remains and sacred artifacts taken from the "Island of the Blue Dolphins." Their challengers are formally-overlooked tribal members who simply wish to rebury their ancestors on that island, which, according to their ancient beliefs, will bring about a reunion with their families in heaven among the Milky Way.
