Lesson: I think there are two lessons: perseverance and love.
First of all, Karana would have never been stranded on an island if she hadn't jumped out of the boat to go back and protect her brother. Then she had to survive many years alone on the island, making weapons, gathering and cooking food, protecting herself from the wild dogs, building shelter, and making clothes. Some of this she had never done until she was stranded, and if she had given up she would've died. Then we have all of the animals she took care of. If I remember correctly: two dogs, five birds, one otter, and sort of a fox (she saved it's life but then let it live in the wild). That is a lot of love and friendship.
