I needed a non-fiction book and I saw this one, Pocahontas is one of my favorite stories that Disney has made. This book is a little different then the Disney movies but I think I like this one better. I picked up this one because it was a different side or view of Pocahontas. The books that I find myself reading and liking is usually based on earlier times, I also love true stories so this was perfect for me to read. Its very interesting how the author explains the Englishmen from a " Indians " point of view. If your into Indians and Cowboys I think that you would like this because, its similar just its instead of cowboys its Englishmen and this is a little older. I will definitely read this book again sometime when I get bored or am on a rode trip.

This is about a girl named Pocahontas who likes to hunt and is Indian, but ends up falling in love with an Englishman. Pocahontas is in the wood with her brother Nantaquas, they are hunting together. Pocahontas sees a eagle in a trap, her brother tells her to hold it down while a gets something to tie the eagle down. Pocahontas did not want the eagle to die so she set it free. Her brother came back and was mad and said for her to go back to the village so she did. She herd that palefaced men were on the shore, Pocahontas and another Indian when to see the palefaces. Pocahontas' father went to a village close to the there's. He saw Captain John Smith prisoner in one of there houses, John was taken back to Pocahontas' village. They were going to kill John Smith, but Pocahontas herd earlier that she could save his life by saying he is hers. So she did, and her father said " ok if you want him he is my son and your brother'. So Pocahontas and John talked and talked till john had to go back to were he lived in Jamestown on the island. The Indians and towns people went back in forth in trade and sometimes talk of war. Then a while later talk of John Smith's death went around Pocahontas' village, Pocahontas was sad and didn't talk of John Smith. Then Pocahontas was tricked onto the Englishmen ship and was taken prisoner until her father gave back what he stole from the Englishmen. She fell in-love with one of the palefaces and had a kid many people saw the child his name was Thomas and Pocahontas got a new name Rebecca. They went to London and Pocahontas was constantly being bombarded by people asking questions. Pocahontas found out that John Smith actually survived, but she was mad that he did not come to see Pocahontas before now. She was depressed and wanted to go home so after the holidays her husband promised that they would visit home. One day Pocahontas fell ill and John Rolfe her husband said " Pocahontas" she did not answer, and she never got to go home before she died.

Written as a story, in third person. Many nice black and white line drawings by Peter Burchard.

This is just a little biography of Pocahontas for the kiddies. It's nothing spectacular--mere waiting room material. The book has two main sections: the first focuses on the events surrounding her interaction with Captain John Smith, the second picks up a few years later and tells of her marriage and eventual trip to England. She had an interesting life, which makes it worth reading. I was left wanting to know more. I don't know, however, if that's a weakness of the book or more reflective of the fact that I'm a grown up and the book is written for kids.

Pocahontas is portrayed as having idealistic faith in the good intentions of the English in this fictionalized account of her life. The traditional story that she "saved" John Smith's life is repeated, though Smith's interpretation of events is now questioned by scholars. Includes black-and-white illustrations.
A contrived opening episode, in which the Indian princess frees an eagle from her brother's snare, too pointedly anticipates both her rescue of John Smith and her closing deathbed words, "Let the bird go free, Nantaquas." In between is the story, fictionalized as to conversations and feelings but based on Smith's account and other more reliable reports.... Pocahontas' dilemma in bridging two cultures is dramatized with some poignance, despite simplistic characterization and excessive detailing of her emotions....
