Pocahontas: The True Story of the Powhatan Princessby Catherine Iannone, Catherine Aannone (Other)
The legend of Pocahontas is one of the most beloved tales in American history. But the event she is best known for-her dramatic rescue of English colonist John Smith-may never have happened. Some scholars now think the incident was part of a staged adoption ritual making Smith a member of her tribe. Others believe Smith made up the story, which would have taken place when Pocahontas was about 12 years old. Though less well known, the facts of Pocahontas's adulthood are equally dramatic.
