Rating: ★★★★★

Hi! My name’s Pocahontas. If you like books, then you shoudl read my book. The story of Pocahontas is by Caryn Jenner. This book talks about my life. I (Pocahontas) met some different people like my dada. His name is Powhatan. He is chief of 14,000 indians. There also is John Smith. He was Pocahontas’ friend. John Roffe was her husband. This book tells you a lot about indians. I also helped the indians and settlers make peace. This book is a great book for all ages.
