It is a story of a lesser -- known part of the Civil War, the Western campaign, a part different in its issues and its problems, and fought with a different savagery.

In the first grade, I got kicked out of class EVERY DAY. My punishment was being sent to the library for two hours while the rest of the class watched TV. I read this book and remember thinking that I knew exactly what Kira meant when she said: "The Island of the Blue Dolphins was my home; I had no other." That library helped me to understand that no matter what happened in my life, I could always find a home in good books.
