This is the first authoritative edition of one of the most significant children's books of the twentieth century. Winner of the 1961 Newbery Medal,Island of the Blue Dolphinstells the story of a girl left alone for eighteen years in the aftermath of violent encounters with Europeans o... n 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 O'Dell that ensured the success ofIsland of the Blue Dolphinsat 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 ';Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island,' on whom O'Dell's story is based, and Native peoples are engaged in the reclamation of indigenous histories and ongoing struggles for political sovereignty.
