Shrouded Heritage: Island of the Blue Dolphins (color photo edition) describes the quest of a father and daughter to reveal the true events that inspired Scott O'Dell's most beloved novel, and detail the life and legacy of the real woman who inspired the character O'Dell named Karana. This remarkable saga weaves together a captivating narrative derived from dozens of historic documents, as well as from accounts of Indigenous People who passionately assert their ancestral bond to the actual island that O'Dell fictionalized in his literary masterpiece. During this saga, bitter conflicts arise as suppressed evidence is revealed by the author that challenges academics who then must fight to retain thousands of human remains taken from the real Island of the Blue Dolphins. Their opponents are Indigenous Peoples who wish to rebury their ancestors on that island in order to return their souls to heaven among the Milky Way.
