Booklist Review: "Ages 10^-adult. Vivid artwork, historic reenactments, and focused commentary bring immediacy to this story of the Powhatan princess Pocahontas (1595^-1617). Authenticity as well as veracity underscores this portrait, which stands in contrast to that depicted in Disney's fanciful feature. Here, the carefully positioned camera captures such details as the barren landscape and the Native American village as it was when Englishman John Smith arrived. What happened after Smith was brought before Powhatan and exactly what role Pocahontas played in furthering peace between the Powhatans and the Europeans are probed here by historians. The high-quality visuals, the skillful script, and the illuminating interviews contribute to a fascinating biography of a keen young woman and give insight into the real life of a legendary American figure. Pocahontas is shown to be courageous, caring, and visionary. This absorbing program effectively balances the Disney version. --Nancy McCray"
