Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

In this fascinating and engaging book, Sara L. Schwebel explores the American and California history that inspired Scott O'Dell's Island of the Blue Dolphins. She presents never-published material about the writing and publishing history of the book, and by showing earlier drafts of the manuscript, she sheds light on the revision process. Schwebel provides the kind of scholarly study, based on archival materials and personal interviews, that is all too rarely undertaken for classic children's books. Her important discussion of the portrayal of Native American characters in literature and the film industry needs to be read by everyone evaluating and thinking about books today.--Anita Silvey, former publisher of Scott O'Dell and author of Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Children's Book

It is hard to think of a work of children's literature better served by a new critical edition than Scott O'Dell's Island of the Blue Dolphins. It is a wonderful combination of thought and magic.--David Treuer, author of Rez Life: An Indian's Journey through Reservation Life

An invaluable edition of a classic of children's literature. Schwebel's masterful scholarly introduction sets this much-loved novel in a rich and fascinating historical context.--Jill Lepore, author Read More chevron_right
