Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
AND you know what I have actually read this book! The interesting thing is I remember my Mom reading it to my sister and I before there was more than 4 of us and we still lived in the city before the farm and when life was innocent and peaceful.

I am pretty sure Mom still has a copy of the book, going to have to ask if I can borrow it!
