Abstract:

Many school-aged children are familiar with the story of Pocahontas. Yet most accounts of this Native American icon-gleaned from sources such as fables and animated feature films-are rife with inaccuracies. This title emphasizes the truth behind the embellishments, examining how an Indian princess first befriended early American colonists and then became an influential contributor to their survival and well-being. Readers also get a meaningful glimpse into life in the Jamestown colony, as well as the customs and traditions of Algonquin society.
