    One thought on “Pocahontas: True Princess: A Young Girl's Breathtaking Story and Her Amazing Journey to Faith in God”

    1. This an amazing story about the true Pocahontas. Most know her from the Disney movie, but this book portrays her as she truly was - a spirited, faithful princess with a heart for others. This book is especially good for younger readers, as the author depicted her story with discretion. Unnecessary, gory details about the human sacrifice and other religious rituals were avoided, yet historical accuracy was well-observed.

    2. I read this when I was younger and was captivated by the story. I wonderful story full of history, adventure, and faith

    3. Loved it. Age 10+ for content about human sacrifice (vague, no gruesome details). Not preachy at all regarding her faith.

    4. At first, Princess Pocahontas is found hiding under a bearskin when going on a journey.

    5. Very entertainingly written and based on historic events. It is somewhat fictionalized, embellishing a bit to show how an Algonquin princess might have lived and acted in the early 1600s, but stays mostly within what we know from the English journals and letters about Pocahontas.

    6. I read this book to my children a couple of times. It is a refreshing alternative to the Disney movie and tells a more historically accurate account of this remarkable girl's life. It teaches about her strong will and even stronger faith in God.

    7. I love this book! Must have read it about three or four times. So much better than the Hollywood movie! It follow's the true story (which is really quite amazing) with just the right amount of embellishments. Feeling like reading it again! :)
