Summary
Pocahontas's name wasn't originally Pocahontas. Pocahontas was a nickname! She was later known by another name, too. Once she began following the religion of the English, she took the name Rebecca. More of her life is uncertain. Readers learn the major accounts of Pocahontas's life and the discrepancies among them. Full-color images and fun fact boxes help contextualize her life with that of the Powhatan culture in which she grew up. The Powhatans relationship with the English colored her life, and the stories that came of her dealings with the English still fascinate today

Summary
An introduction to the story of Pocahontas describes her life as a Powhatan Indian woman and the relationship between the Powhatans and the English, and explains that she probably did not save John Smith's life
