Karana is the heroine of the novel, a twelve-year-old Native American girl who lives on the island of Ghalas-at. When her people decide to migrate to the California mainland, Karana stays behind with her brother, who did not make it to the ship in time.

Throughout the story, she matures into a self-reliant young woman while remaining lonely and desperate for human connection. She is resilient and has the skills to keep herself alive in often harsh conditions.
