Book Overview

Winner of both the Newbery Medal for Island of the Blue Dolphins, and the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his body of works for children, Scott O Dell is a name beloved by children and adults alike. A native Californian, O Dell has written about the land of his birth with a passion and love born of his attachment to this extraordinary part of the country. In Cruise of the Arctic Star, O Dell travels up the coast of California in his beloved cedar-hulled off-shore cruiser. Along the way, the author relates his marvelous adventures, but also takes the listener back to the times of Cabrillo, Magellan, Sir Francis Drake, Father Serra, Jedediah Strong Smith, Kit Carson, Sutter, Kate Sessions, the Chumash Indians, Trinidad Ortega, Robert Louis Stevenson, and many other colorful characters that make up California s dramatic past. The result is a journey through time filled with pathos, adventure, and a passion for the beauty and wonder of the California coast."
