I’d recently enjoyed reading the young-adult wilderness survival novel series written by American writer Gary Paulsen. It starts with The Hatchet (1986).
Island of the Blue Dolphins (1960) is some what similar.
… the story of a 12-year-old island girl named Karana, who is stranded alone for years on an island off the California coast.
It is based on the true story of Juana Maria, a Nicoleño Native American left alone for 18 years on San Nicolas Island during the 19th century. …
… the subject of much literary and pedagogical scholarship related to survival, feminism, the resilience of Indigenous peoples, and beyond. …
Both books won the Newbery Medal for distinguished contributions to American literature for children.
It was made into a film in 1960.
