This is a very informative book over Pochahontas. It gives a lot of facts that I didn't know where true. It also has a little bit of extra facts at the bottom of each page. I likes this book the myth that John Smith and Pochahontas were lovers was dimistified!! Oh well, It's nice to learn something new!! This would be a great book to use when learning about the native american culture or during Thanksgiving week.
