Read full description of the books:
This book was a truthful account of the life of Pocahontas, as well as her relationship with John Smith. It dismisses myths about any romance, which have been widespread, and depicts her life as it actually was, using accounts from John Smith and others as a resource. Beyond describing Pocahontas, the book paints a picture of colonization and the dangers it posed for both English men and Native Americans.
Pocahontas is very interesting, and I think many children would like to learn more about her. The author speculated as to how Pocahontas was feeling when certain events took place, which helps the reader to understand what it was really like to be her. She was also presented in a believable manner. The information is accurate, and the author provided in depth notes and sources at the end of the book. The style of the writing kept me engaged the whole time and the book never became boring.
I do not usually enjoy biographies, but I did like this book. It was really interesting to hear the truth about Pocahontas, since I really only knew what I had learned from the Disney movie, and a lot of the information in the movie was false. I could really relate to Pocahontas and imagine how she was feeling, even though her motives are up for debate. I think this is a great resource for students who would like to know more about the true story of Pocahontas or colonization and Native Americans in general.
