Book Description:

While the romanticized story of the Jamestown colony has been retold many times in books, films, and even comic strips, the events following the marriage of Pocahontas and John Rolfe are less well-known. The peace and goodwill did not last; in fact, within 100 years of the English settlers' arrival in Virginia, the Indian population was reduced by over 90 percent through warfare, disease, and indiscriminate extermination.

About the Author:

Alfred A. Cave is professor emeritus of history at the University of Toledo, Toledo, OH.
