  • The villagers leave the island, but Ramo gets left behind. Karana leaps out of the boat and swims to shore so her little brother would not be alone. The two siblings must work together to survive on their own.
  • RESOLUTION
  • Wild dogs attack and kill Ramo. In her grief, Karana burns down her village because she can't stand to be there by herself any more. She vows to kill the wild dogs, but decides not to kill the pack leader and tames him. She names him Rontu, or Fox Eyes.
  • The Aleuts return to her island and Karana retreats to a cave. She makes friends with Tutok, an Aleut girl. Karana yearns for human company, even if not of her tribe. One day Tutok does not come at their normal time and Karana watches the Aleut ship sail away.
  • Karana is rescued from her island and from her solitude. She has been alone on the island for several years. She discovers that the rest of her village did not survive the journey on the ocean.
