This movie is based on the Newbery Award winning book "Island of the Blue Dolphins" by Scott O'Dell. The book was based on the true story of a woman left behind on the Channel Islands by missionaries in the early 1800s. She lived alone on one of the islands for eighteen years and died of dysentery seven weeks after she was rescued and brought to the mainland. She is buried in the graveyard of the Santa Barbara Mission in California.
