In 1607, when John Smith and his Coatmen arrive in Powhatan to begin settling the colony of Virginia, their relations with the village's inhabitants are anything but warm. Pocahontas, the beloved daughter of the Powhatan chief, Mamanatowic, is just eleven; but in spite of her age..., this astute young girl acts with wisdom and compassion, and plays a fateful, peaceful role in the destinies of two peoples.
