Pocahontas A Princess Betrayed by Caroline Corby


Pocahontas A Princess Betrayed by Caroline Corby

Pocahontas: A Princess Betrayed tells the thrilling story of a young Native American girl who saved the first English colony in Virginia and shaped the destiny of her people forever. There was a prophesy talked of amongst the Native Americans of Virginia - a prophesy that one day a nation would spring from a certain spot on Chesapeake Bay and destroy them. When ships land there in April 1607, Chief Powhatan wants the intruders killed - and when their leader, John Smith, is captured, he orders his execution. But Pocahontas bravely intervenes and persuades her father to befriend the foreigners, learning English to act as translator and helping the newcomers survive the bitter winters in the strange land. But are they to be trusted or will the prophecy come true? Pocahontas learns that bringing two cultures together comes at a cost in this exciting addition to the Before They Were Famous series.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
