KIRKUS REVIEW

A healthy biography that hits a mark or two above the standard. The picture of Pocahontas' extraordinary (for an Indian girl) childhood as the daughter of Chief Powhatan is a friendly one and shows her to young readers as remarkably like the girl next door. Her subsequent part in history as an important tie in British-Indian relationships is well carried out and animosities and friendships are aired along with the obviously more interesting aspects of her marriage to Rolfe and long misunderstanding with John Smith. Substantial.
