In Virginia, Pocahontas, Chief Powhatan's daughter, ponders her life as she is faced with marriage to the stern warrior, Kocoum. The British establish the settlement of Jamestown, Virginia and dig up the countryside for gold. Smith meets Pocahontas and they overcome their initial conflicts. She teaches him about her world. Relations between the British and the Indians deteriorate. Powhatan captures Smith and is about to execute him, but Pocahontas intervenes and Powhatan sets him free. When Ratcliffe tries to kill Powhatan, Smith saves him but is seriously wounded.

The English see a pristine Eden, and the inhabitants of the great native civilization see invaders. Captain John Smith--sent on a reconnaissance mission to scope out "the Naturals'" fortifications--is quickly captured and sentenced to death by the chief. At the last moment the chief's favorite daughter, Pocahontas, throws herself upon Smith and begs her father to spare his life. The passionate and noble young native woman and the ambitious soldier of fortune find themselves torn between the undeniable requirements of civic duty and the inescapable demands of the heart.

Price tells a tale of cowardice and courage, stupidity and brilliance, tragedy and costly triumph. He takes us into the day-to-day existence of the British men and women whose charge was to find gold and route to the Orient, and who instead found hardship and wretched misery. Death, in fact, became the settlers' most faithful companion, and their infighting was ceaseless." "Price offers a rare balanced view of the relationship between the settlers and the native. He unravels the crucial role of Pocahontas, a young woman whose reality has been obscured by centuries of legend and misinformation (and, more recently, animation). He paints indelible portraits of Chief Powhatan, the aged monarch who came close to ending the colony's existence, and Captain John Smith, the former mercenary and slave, whose disdain for class distinctions infuriated many around him - even as his resourcefulness made him essential to the colony's success."--BOOK JACKET+-+169069028516337ocn045055019visu19980.06Pocahontas II journey to a new worldHistoryJuvenile worksFictionDramaPocahontas travels to England as an ambassador of peace, where she must convince the King of England that her people are truly civilized in order to stop an armada moving against them+-+055663332532415647ocn000210473book19710.39Emerson, Everett HCaptain John SmithCriticism, interpretation, etcCaptain John Smith (1580-1631), famed for saving the young Virginia colony and for his lucky rescue by Pocahontas, was the quintessential Great Elizabethan Adventurer. He traveled throughout the world, including the entire eastern coast of America, writing eloquently and at length about his experiences. With publication of A True Relation of such occurrences and accidents of noate as hath hapned in virginia since the first planting of that Collony (1608), Smith became author of the first American book in English, and his canon includes the well-known Generall Historie of Virginia, New England, and the Summer Isles, as well as the autobiographical ramble, Advertisements. Yet few scholars have approached the Captain's many books and pamphlets as literary achievements. In this welcome revision of his successful 1971 study, Everett Emerson does this expertly, showing Smith's canon to be thick with influences, embedded in a well-formed tradition and stylishly self-reflexive. Modernizing Smith's language for contemporary readers, Emerson illuminates his radically secular vision of the meaning of America (expressed at a time when most believed colonization was the work of God); his promotion of Virginia's cause; the objective descriptions of the native peoples and English colonists alike; his unique attempt to define a distinctively American identity; and especially his self-portrait as an individualist, soldier, and dreamer. Analyzing each of Smith's works, Emerson reveals the rich connections among the author's life, principles, and letters, and shows us how, more than any of his colleagues - from Sir Walter Raleigh to Richard Hakluyt - Smith successfully advanced the colonization and character of the "New" World. Occasioned by the 1986 publication of all Smith's texts in their authoritative editions, this updated study is especially timely15606ocn001155965book19750.29Vaughan, Alden TAmerican genesis : Captain John Smith and the founding of VirginiaHistoryRecounts the life and career of the Elizabethan soldier of fortune, adventurer, and cartographer-publicist of the New World as they reflect his nation's expanding imperial enterprise and the beginnings of American settlement15506ocn000260100book19640.29Barbour, Philip LThe three worlds of Captain John Smith13016ocn010777415book19850.06Gleiter, JanPocahontasHistoryJuvenile worksBiographyA biography of the Powhatan Indian woman who befriended the English settlers at Jamestown, Virginia, and helped maintain peace between her tribe and the colonists+-+950849663510864ocn001276187book19530.29Smith, BradfordCaptain John Smith, his life & legend10736ocn052455559book20030.25Allen, Paula GunnPocahontas : medicine woman, spy, entrepreneur, diplomatHistoryBiographySourcesIn striking contrast to conventional accounts, Pocahontas is a bold and daring biography that attempts to tell the extraordinary story of the beloved Indian maiden from the Native American perspective. Drawing from sources often overlooked by Western historians, Dr. Paula Gunn Allen offers remarkable new insights into the adventurous life and sacred role of this foremost American heroine. We have all heard about the love-struck Pocahontas saving the dashing Captain John Smith from execution by the Chief of the Powhatans, but what if the whole event was a staged ritual of his death as a foreigner and his rebirth as an adopted member of the Powhatan Nation? Settlers at Jamestown report a young, cartwheeling Pocahontas frequently at their fort, but could the innocent-looking visitor actually have been a spy -- reporting back to her elders what she saw there? Was Pocahontas willingly kidnapped by the British settlers in exchange for corn and other ransom from her tribe, or was this a part of her more elaborate plan? We have been taught that this amazing woman was later baptized a Christian and married in the church at Jamestown, yet she helped her husband, John Rolfe, grow and export tobacco -- a powerful, indigenous herb to which the Native Americans attributed shamanic powers. Finally, the "Indian Princess," now known as Lady Rebecca Rolfe, traveled to England for an audience with King James I and Queen Anne. Was this a publicity stunt orchestrated by the English backers of the Virginia colony, or was Pocahontas fulfilling her role as a "Beloved Woman," an honor designated to a female of great spiritual power who was to be trained from birth in the diplomatic and political ways of her tribe? Pocahontas became an extraordinary ambassador, forming groundbreaking relations between the Indians, the American colonists, and the British. Dr. Gunn Allen convincingly argues that through all of this, Pocahontas fulfilled a crucial and essential role in the birth of a New World. This stunning portrait presents the fascinating, untold story of one of the most romantic and beloved figures in American history, and reveals why so many have revered Pocahontas as the female counterpart to George Washington, the true "Mother of Our Nation."+-+K23180515510526ocn049874705book20030.07Bruchac, JosephPocahontasHistoryJuvenile worksFictionTold from the viewpoints of Pocahontas and John Smith, describes their lives in the context of the encounter between the Powhatan Indians and the English colonists of seventeenth-century Jamestown, Virginia+-+9282167065102710ocn000391797book19590.07Foster, GenevieveThe world of Captain John Smith, 1580-1631Juvenile worksA historical survey of Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, examining the people, places, and events that gave color to the seventeenth century during the lifetime of the Englishman who helped map, chart and settle the New World84419ocn000370958book18710.70Adams, Charles FrancisChapters of ErieHistory8304ocn060742011book20050.24Hoobler, DorothyCaptain John Smith : Jamestown and the birth of the American dreamHistoryBiography"Using newly discovered material, historians Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler present a well-rounded portrait of the Jamestown colony and Smith's accomplishments there, as well as new information on the Native Americans Smith and the other colonists encountered.
