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 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 O’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 “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.

Die wahre Geschichte des Indianermädchens Won-a-pa-lei, das von 1835-1853 auf einer einsamen Insel im Pazifik 18 Jahre eines Robinson-Daseins durchstand, erhielt diverse Auszeichnungen, darunter den H.C.-Andersen-Preis und im Jahr 1963 auch den Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis. Die bewegende Geschichte eines tapferen, von Angst und Hoffnung geprägten Lebens, das mit der Rettung der "Verschollenen von San Nicolas" endet, wird erst jetzt nach über 20-jähriger Pause wieder aufgelegt. Das in mehr als 20 Sprachen übersetzte Buch des Kaliforniers erzählt anschaulich vom Kampf mit wildern Hunden, von einer lebensgefährlichen Verletzung der jungen Indianerin und alltäglichen Widrigkeiten, die sie in zähem Überlebenswillen meistert. Ein auch sprachlich eindrucksvoller Roman eines außergewöhnlichen Schicksals, der, 1962 erstmals veröffentlicht, nichts von seiner brillanten Spannung verloren hat. Überall zu empfehlen.. - Das Indianermädchen Won-a-pa-lei lebt von 1835 bis 1853 achtzehn lange Jahre allein auf einer einsamen Insel, ehe sie entdeckt wird: die spannende Geschichte eines historisch belegten Geschehens.
