In a lively and entertaining text and extraordinary lithographs, the d'Aulaires bring to life the fascinating story of Pocahontas, the Native American princess who played such a crucial role in the early days of the Jamestown settlement. Here she is depicted as a prankish girl, a courageous and generous young woman who is willing to risk her father's wrath for helping the starving English settlers, a dignified and cool-headed captive during her betrayal and kidnapping, and a noble and handsome woman as she is presented to the King and Queen of England. This delightful book offers an authentic yet very human portrayal of one of America's first and best-loved heroines. Recommended for ages 4 to 11.
