This award-winning book was inspired by the true story of an American Indian woman left alone on one of the Channel Islands for 18 years in the 1800s. She's come to be known as the Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island and is thought to have been of Gabrielino-Tongva descent.
San Nicolas Island is owned by the US Navy and closed to the public. But you can experience island isolation and the natural resources described in the book on the park's five islands.
