Christina Moore's reading does full justice to this historical novel about the courage and ingenuity of Karana. The young Indian girl lived alone for eighteen years on an island off the coast of California in harmony with the world around her. Moore delivers the first-person narration with a quiet, nearly uninflected voice, creating the sense of Karana's youth and peril. Moore measures out her words, making the space between them speak for the desperate care with which Karana builds and provisions her home. Even Karana's moments of triumph, taming Rontu the wild dog and killing the giant octopus, have a feeling of patience, solitude and dignity when read with this sensitive control.
