In California, the novel “Island of the Blue Dolphins” is very popular. The book is about a Native American girl is left alone on an island, she survived while hunting fishes for food. This book is actually based on a true story. The girl was known as the Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island, this island is near the Southern coast of California. Steve Schwartz, an archaeologist who was very interested on this, set off a journey to find the Lone Woman’s cave. He was eager to dig and find this cave. It took Schwartz more than 20 years to find it, and he finally did it in 2012. It was 20 feet high and 75 feet long and was packed with sand. Schwartz worked with an archaeology professor to carefully dig out and study the cave.
Have you heard of the famous book “Island of the Blue Dolphins” ? It is very interesting and it’s actually based on a true story. I think it will be fabulous to find where the Lone Woman lived. I think Schwartz is a very intelligent and persistent archaeologist. After all that hard work for 20 years, he finally did it. If he wasn’t that persistent, I don’t think he will find it, but he wasn’t scared of failing and kept on trying again. I think that this is something that we should learn from this article. I think this connects with ourselves too, because we should also keep on trying things, it is okay to fail for your first time, or second, or third, but the thing is that you need to learn from your failures so that you won’t make the same mistake over and over again. If you want to succeed, failing is the most important thing of all. Nobody is perfect for the first time, but if keep on practicing or doing it again, there might be a time that you actually got it right or succeed. However, I think Schwartz is a great archaeologist.
