In a lively and entertaining text and extraordinary lithographs the authors bring to life the fascinating story of Pocahontas, the Native American princess who played such a crucial role in the early days of the Jamestown settlement.
Here she is depicted as a prankish girl, a courageous and generous young woman who is willing to risk her father s wrath for helping the starving English settlers, a dignified and cool-headed captive during her betrayal and kidnapping, and a noble and beautiful woman as she is presented to the King and Queen of England.
This delightful book offers an authentic yet very human portrayal of one of America s first and best-loved heroines.
My 11yo son, who says he hates history, begged to read more of Pocahontas after reading maybe 10 minutes of it in the doctor's waiting room. He retained more from this book than from the history book we read previously, due in large part to the engaging writing style and wonderful illustrations. - Cherí
