Description

Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powhatan, has been promised to her betrothed, Kokum, according to custom. It is 1607 and the life of Pocahontas—like that of the entire American continent—is about to change dramatically. With her love of freedom—as well as her belief in understanding and tolerance between the two peoples—and by defying her father's taboos, Pocahontas forges a relationship with the newly arrived British colonists. She secretly provides them with food and saves the life of the handsome Captain Smith, falling madly in love.

This dynamic new graphic novel evokes the end of a way of life against the backdrop of territorial and amorous rivalries.
