$0.00

NO LONGER AVAILABLE  Pocahontas, Powhatan, Opechancanough: Three Indian Lives Changed by Jamestown by anthropologist Helen Rountree describes the lives of the three most significant Powhatan individuals from the perspective of Virginia Native Americans. This is not an easy task because the Powhatan view of events from the seventeenth century was never recorded. The author performs a remarkable task in the book that examines the lives of two Powhatan leaders and the highly celebrated Pocahontas. In so doing, she chips away at the Disney version of the Pocahontas and John Smith relationship.
