What happened to Karana of the Island of the Blue Dolphins?

When fourteen-year-old Zia and her brother, Mando, find a boat cast up on the beach near the Santa Barbara mission, they are determined to make the voyage out to the far island—the Island of the Blue Dolphins—where Karana, their aunt, had been left behind nearly eighteen years before, and rescue her.

And so, with a piece of cloth for a sail, a fishhook, a compass, and no experience sailing, Zia and Mando set out in their eighteen-foot boat for the sixty-mile journey, a journey filled with danger and adventure—and a reunion.
