Pocahontas loves her life as a favored daughter of a powerful Indian chief; Englishmen, however, threaten the existence of all she holds dear, while one man, John Smith, holds a special charm for her that she cannot resist. Soon she is torn between two worlds. "This book dispels myths and describes with immediacy the life of the girl whose active conscience made her a pawn, exploited by her own people and the white world . . ".--Publishers Weekly.
