HASH(0x989c0eb8) out of 5 stars True story of Pocahontas 16 Sept. 2004
By Marsha Lytle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed this book and it has inspired me to do more research on the early days of Virginia. I liked the alternating tales of the eleven year old Pocahontas, and the woeful John Smith, who was somewhat of an egomaniac if one is to believe the author, who took the story from Smith's own diaries.

It, of course, dispells all the romantic fantasies of Pocahontas saving Smith's life. In fact, she married John Rolfe, not Smith.

For all his complaining about being mistreated for his lack of family connections, John Smith probably was the hero he portrays himself to be. Otherwise it seems Jamestown would have failed miserably.

Some of the most interesting details involve the infighting, which at times turns deadly, the treason, selfishness, and other human faults and frailties revealed in Smith's accounts.

Readers will also enjoy the story of the eleven year old Pocahontas, and the "royal" lifestyle she enjoys as her father's favorite daughter.

I really enjoyed this book, particularly the way it gives you both Pocohontas' and Smith's point of view, and I thought it was really fair and insightful about both sides. The only thing about the Smith chapters I didn't like was that, in the beginning, they went off on so many tangents it was confusing. While that may have been true to character, it made it harder to read. Last, I wish the book were longer! I would have liked to read on about what happened to Pocahontas after Smith left.

HASH(0x98947990) out of 5 stars Difficult Read 5 Oct. 2011
By C. Woods - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I do not recommend this for 12 yr old. Hard to read, to say the least. Written from John Smith's point of view. This book tells the story as if John Smith were talking in the 1600's, which makes it very hard to relate to and to understand.

I think the book was great. It was informational and interesting. Not just another boring biography, you have to read for a school report or essay. I liked the book l, despite the fact I don't like biographies,auto- biographies, or historical books.
HASH(0x987d5504) out of 5 stars A more historical representation of an old story. 10 Feb. 2016
By Susan I. Ramos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Interesting having the POV from two separate first person narratives. Switching from one perspective to the other in describing the same events was a less conventional style, but it worked nicely in presenting a historical look at the Pocahontas story.
