About this title

Synopsis:

IN THEIR OWN WORDS: POCAHONTAS tells the exciting story of the life of this famous Native American woman, using the journals and writings of English colonists.

Famous for saving the life of Capt. John Smith in 1608, Pocahontas grew up as the favorite daughter of the Native American chief of the Powhatans. Pocahontas's rescue of Smith made her famous not only in colonial America, but across the ocean in England as well. Pocahontas made enormous contributions to the survival of Jamestown by bringing the colonists food and promoting peace between Powhatans and the English. Pocahontas lived a relatively short life, but she made an impact on colonial American history that is still felt today.
Did you know that Pocahontas:
-was really named Matoaka
-taught John Smith how to speak Algonkian
-was kidnapped and held hostage on an English ship?
