The book tells the story of a 12 year-old Native American girl who was left alone for 18 years on San Nicolas Island, the most remote of California's Channel Islands, during the 19th century. The 'Lone Woman' survived with her dog for 18 years before being 'rescued' and brought to Santa Barbara. She died there and is buried in the Santa Barbara Mission.
The true story that inspired the book is even more extraordinary than the fictionalized retelling. There has never been a documentary that goes out to the island, visits the Lone Woman's campsite and cave, and visually captures the adventure that she experienced all those years ago. Alone on the Island of the Blue Dolphins does this.
