SummaryAdd a Summary
At the beginning of the story a hurricane came and sank a cargo ship loaded with robots. Only five crates survived the hurricane. After a while they reached land, four crates broke, and one survived. Then some otters came and played a little with the broken parts, broke open the last crate, and turned on the robot inside.
Later in the story, Roz (the robot) breaks her foot and has to make another. Winter comes to the island and it is the coldest winter of all. She makes more homes for the other animals. A lodge burns down and they put it out with snow. Winter is over and spring comes again.
At the end of the story three reco's come to retrieve Roz. They are killed, but Roz is hurt. She goes to the mainland to get repairs and then come back to her home. He takes the Reco's jet to get to the mainland. They are warned that more Reco's will come to retrieve Roz and bring him to the mainland.
