|From The Publisher*||Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powhatan, has been promised to her betrothed, Kokum, according to custom. At that very moment, three British ships arrive on the coast of America.|
It is 1607, and the life of Pocahontas-like the fate of the entire American continent-is about to change dramatically. With her great love of freedom-as well as her belief in understanding and tolerance between the two peoples-and by defying her father's taboos, Pocahontas forges a relationship with the British colonists who have just disembarked. She secretly provides them with food and saves the life of the handsome Captain Smith . . . and falls madly in love.
Set in pre-colonial America, this dynamic new graphic novel evokes the end of a way of life against the backdrop of territorial and amorous rivalries.
|Review Quote*||A gorgeous and vividly illustrated historical romance about the titular Native American legend. - Library Journal|
