For those who seek the truth behind history’s legends and myths, this book is a must-read. After 400 years, the Powhatan tribe’s oral history of their famous ancestor, Pocahontas, is finally written down. The truth is dark and shocking and makes Pocahontas not only a heroine but a martyr. Pocahontas was not part of a fictionalized love story as we have been taught; instead she was a terrible victim of male greed, lust and power, and once her usefulness was over, she was tossed away like a rag. Moreover, the “famous” Captain John Smith was no more than a robber and a liar. This book should be in the library of every American high school and should be referred to in every course of American history.
