The book quickly became a classic of children's literature and continues to be a best seller almost 50 years after it was first released. Island of the Blue Dolphins helped set the tone for the environmental movement of the 1960s and 1970s and proved that readers would accept strong and independent young women as the main characters in adventure stories. O'Dell was 62 years old when his masterpiece was published, but he had no desire to slow down. He continued to write over the next three decades, producing another 25 novels about courageous people. Scott O'Dell examines the life and work of this remarkable talent whose enduring books have touched generations of readers and redefined the young-adult fiction genre."@en ;
