by Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire
Paperback from Beautiful Feet Books
First published in 1946 with the d'Aulaires's beautiful lithographic
prints, this tale of the first colony at Jamestown is told from the perspective
of the princess daughter of the mighty chief Powhatan. When the Natives
judge the white man's magic as evil, John Smith is condemned to death only
the intervention of Pocahontas saves his life and a tentative friendship
is established between Pocahontas's tribe and the new colonists. The King
of England sends a crown, rich robes and a royal bed to honor Powhatan
and he is pleased, but the white man's insistence that the Indians give
them corn to sustain them through the long winters threatens their tenuous
relationship. Pocahontas's ultimate marriage to John Rolfe, the birth of
their son, their voyage to England and presentation to the King and Queen
is the stuff of fairy tales except that it is one of the great true stories
of America's earliest days.

Paperback from Graphia
In 1607, when John Smith and
his "Coatmen" arrive in Powhatan to begin settling the colony of Virginia,
their relations with the village's inhabitants are anything but warm. Pocahontas,
the beloved daughter of the Powhatan chief, is just eleven, but this astute
young girl plays a fateful, peaceful role in the destinies of two peoples.
Drawing from the personal journals of John Smith, American Book Award
winner Joseph Bruchac reveals an important chapter of history through the
eyes of two legendary figures.
Includes an afterword, a glossary, and other historical context.
and the Powhatan Dilemma: The American Portraits Series
by Camilla Townsend
Paperback from Hill and Wang
Media Published: 2005-08-11
Camilla Townsend's stunning
book differs from all previous biographies of Pocahontas in capturing how
similar seventeenth-century Native Americans were--in the way they saw,
understood, and struggled to control their world--not only to the invading
English but to ourselves.
Neither naïve nor innocent, Indians like Pocahontas and her father,
the powerful king Powhatan, confronted the vast might of the English with
sophistication, diplomacy, and violence. Indeed, Pocahontas's life is a
testament to the subtle intelligence that Native Americans, always aware
of their material disadvantages, brought against the military power of
the colonizing English. Resistance, espionage, collaboration, deception:
Pocahontas's life is shown as a road map to Native American strategies
of defiance exercised in the face of overwhelming odds and in the hope
for a semblance of independence worth the name.
