E-BOOK EXCERPT

This is the first authoritative edition of one of the most significant childrenโ€™s books of the twentieth century. Winner of the 1961 Newbery Medal, Island of the Blue Dolphins tells 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. Sara L. Schwebel explores the composition history and editorial decisions made by author Scott Oโ€™Dell that ensured the success of Island of the Blue Dolphins at 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 โ€œLone Woman of San Nicolas Island,โ€ on whom Oโ€™Dellโ€™s story is based, and Native peoples are engaged in the reclamation of indigenous histories and ongoing struggles for political sovereignty.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Shrouded Heritage: Island of the Blue Dolphins (color photo edition) describes the quest of a father and daughter to reveal the true events that inspired Scott O'Dell's most beloved novel, and detail the life and legacy of the real woman who inspired the character O'Dell named Karana. This remarkable saga weaves together a captivating narrative derived from dozens of historic documents, as well as from accounts of Indigenous People who passionately assert their ancestral bond to the actual island that O'Dell fictionalized in his literary masterpiece. During this saga, bitter conflicts arise as suppressed evidence is revealed by the author that challenges academics who then must fight to retain thousands of human remains taken from the real Island of the Blue Dolphins. Their opponents are Indigenous Peoples who wish to rebury their ancestors on that island in order to return their souls to heaven among the Milky Way.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Far off the coast of California looms a harsh rock known as the island of San Nicholas. Dolphins flash in the blue waters around it, sea otter play in the vast kep beds, and sea elephants loll on the stony beaches. Here, in the early 1800s, according to history, an Indian girl spent eighteen years alone, and 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. More than this, it is an adventure of the spirit that will haunt the reader long after the book has been put down. Karana's quiet courage, her Indian self-reliance and acceptance of fate, transform what to many would have been a devastating ordeal into an uplifting experience. From loneliness and terror come strength and serenity in this Newbery Medal-winning classic. In celebration of the book's 50th anniversary, this edition has an introduction by Lois Lowry, Newbery Medal-winning author of The Giver and Number the Stars.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Rich in the atmosphere of thirteenth-century Italy, The Road to Damietta offers through Ricca di Montanaros eyes a new perspective on the man who became the famous Saint Francis of Assisi, the guileless, joyous man who praised the oneness of nature and sought to bring the world into harmony. Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace, he said. Where there is hatred, let me sow love, where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.
