This is a first person narrative story of Karana, a native of the village of Ghalas-at. In the Pacific there is an island that looks like a big fish sunning itself in the sea. Around it blue dolphins swim, otters play, and sea elephants and sea birds abound. Once, Indians also lived on the island, and when they left and sailed to the east, one young girl was left behind. Year after year, Karana watched one season pass into another as she waited for a ship to take her away. But while she waited, she kept herself alive by building shelter, making weapons, finding food and fighting her enemies, the wild dogs. Hers is not only an unusual adventure of survival, but also a tale of natural beauty and personal discovery.
