Here is a heroine motivated by love who learns self-reliance,

This review is from: Title: Island of the Blue Dolphins (Audio Cassette)
I read this book at age 11 and am now close to the forty mark but when girlfriends asked me cynically whether any book had ever had the power to change my life. I instantly said yes, and that book was Island of the Blue Dolphins! It is a book that not only features a girl as a strong character but it celebrates her resoursefullness, humanity, earth -conscious ingenuity, and hard work. She can create what she needs with her own two hands and think problems through to a solution. I believe she was the first real, non-comic, heroine I had ever read of and in my mind she is still the best!

If you made this purchase from Avalondesign I think you have been very lucky on this particular occasion with this seller. I recently ordered an item from them which they then cancelled and relisted at a higher price. When I queried this with amazon they sent me an email LIEING that the original item had a disc missing. However, they were caught out in a lie as they had already re listed exactly the same item. I would worry about dealing with a business that is so ready to LIE to customers in order to cover up their mistakes.
