Scott O'Dell - Stories From...

By Jody Williams
1     Where do you get your ideas for stories? That question has been asked of many authors. Some authors say that the ideas are created in their heads. Others say that ideas come from life experiences. Scott O'Dell did not just rely on one area for story ideas. He created stories from his memories. He also used events from history in his writing.
 
2     Scott O'Dell was born on May 23, 1898. He was born in California. At the time he was born, there were only a few cars. There were no highways or airplanes. People traveled on horses or they walked. Scott grew up in a house with his mother and father. The house was on an island. It was built on stilts. At high tide the water flowed under the house.
 
3     Scott O'Dell had always lived near the ocean. As a boy, he and his friends often had adventures on the sea. They would find logs. They would float on the logs and paddle with their hands for hours. After Scott graduated from high school, he went to college but did not finish. When World War I started, he joined the army.
