For more than 20 years, Navy archaeologist Steve Schwartz searched for that cave. It was believed to be home to the island's most famous inhabitant, a Native American woman who survived on the island for 18 years, abandoned and alone, and became the inspiration for "Island of the Blue Dolphins," one of the 20th century's most popular novels for young readers.

Good story, I would hate to have to survive like that for 18 years. She must of been lonely. Hope they have found the cave.

I loved that book. Actually ran away from home to live on an island. (Lived on the southern coast of Maine at the time so it wasn't far)

Realized that the "fun" of living on an island wasn't worth the swim in the Feb waters off Maine.

Also realized - no dolphins.

Never read the book. Sounds intriguing though.

Did you say there were no dolphins?

None on the southern coast of Maine where I was. :)

Really great book. I read it when I was very young. One of the first books that really got to me emotionally.
