Summary; This is the story about a young native girl, Pocahontas and how she saves the life of John Smith, one of first settlers of Jamestown, from being killed by her tribe. She marries John Rolfe and becomes a princess in which they have a son. The son return back to the new land and lives with Pocahontas's tribe and raises a family of his own.
Personal Reaction; Much like the Disney film, this book tells the classic story of Pocahontas but extended the story of her family which I enjoyed.
Classroom Expectation Ideas;
1. Have children create their own tribe.
2. Have a pilgrim and Indian dress up day.
3. Discuss the impact Pocahontas made with helping the new settlers.

Review: This is a book about Pocahontas and how she save John Smith's life, and how she saved Jamestown. In the end Pocahontas (daughter of Pawtown) became the Princes and marries a man named James Rolfe. When they have a son he in the end goes back to his mom's town and lives there and has a huge family.
Critique: This is a good biography because it teaches kids about the life that Pocahontas led, what she accomplished and all of the things she did. This book teaches kids the story of Pocahontas through pictures, and words but still makes it interesting and fun to read.

We really enjoy the D'Aulaire books. They are beautifully illustrated and are full of information. A good biography of a very interesting character. ( )

The 1998 edition is a facsimile of the 1936. Needless to say, it was not the 1998 ed. that so enchanted me in 1966, but I'm very glad it's available to another generation.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0964380366, Paperback)

First published in 1946 with the d'Aulaires's beautiful lithographic prints, this tale of the first colony at Jamestown is told from the perspective of the princess daughter of the mighty chief Powhatan. When the Natives judge the white man's magic as evil, John Smith is condemned to death—only the intervention of Pocahontas saves his life and a tentative friendship is established between Pocahontas's tribe and the new colonists. The King of England sends a crown, rich robes and a royal bed to honor Powhatan and he is pleased, but the white man's insistence that the Indians give them corn to sustain them through the long winters threatens their tenuous relationship. Pocahontas's ultimate marriage to John Rolfe, the birth of their son, their voyage to England and presentation to the King and Queen is the stuff of fairy tales except that it is one of the great true stories of America's earliest days. 46pg
