MY REVIEW:

I read this book with my children.

I have always loved the story of Pocahontas, and it is surprising how much conflicting information there is out there about her! I do not know how much of this biography is historically accurate, but we enjoyed it nonetheless.

I do find it quite surprising at the change in Pocahontas after she marries and becomes known as Rebecca, whose lifestyle is a far cry from her former life as Pocahontas!

We haven’t met a Bulla book yet that we haven’t enjoyed! He is a great story-teller.

MY RATING: 3 stars! We liked it!!

This book qualifies as:
#105 for my 2011 100+ Reading Challenge

  1. I was in school between the ages of 13 and 14 when I read this book. Reading it again after so many years brings back more happy childhood memories. I am 45 years old now and my children are grown.
