ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS
Hi! This is my 4th post about the book Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell. The question of the day is about the characters. How has the past shaped their lives? I think that Karana has shaped her life to survive. Once Ramo died, she wanted to kill the wild dogs who killed him. So, she created weapons (which was against her tribe law) and used them to protect, defend, and survive. I also think that because she lost all of her family, she feels like there is less importance in following tribe customs and law.
