Virginia teacher 24. September 2010
Von C. Thurber - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As listed in my title, I am a Virginia fourth-grade teacher, and my students are expected to study Virginia history. In 2008, the revised VA Standards of Learning (SOL) for Virginia Studies went into effect. These included requiring students to identify and locate the eight state-recognized tribes. This got me to thinking, "Was I teaching an accurate account of Jamestown? Or was I only passing on what the conquerors stated?" As an educator, I feel I am obligated to know the truth, and to present the truth to others. So when I discovered Dr. Linwood and Ms. Daniel's book, I was delighted at the chance to improve my own knowledge.

The Mattaponi tribe calls this a part of their sacred oral tradition. As an amateur historical storyteller, I know how the epic tales were learned and passed on. A student worked with a master of the craft, meticulously memorizing not only the words, but the tone of a tale until it was learned perfectly. Therefore, I believe that this is a true telling of the events in Jamestown. After all, knowing what we know of European settlers, is it so hard to believe that they would resort to violence and trickery to accomplish their means?

The book was well-organized and logical in its arguments. I enjoyed the chronology, the end notes with references, the rich bibliography, and the index to increase my understanding of the events. I was so impressed by the number of source documents that I am interested in perusing several of the books listed in the bibliography, to continue my research.

This is an important book, but it will not be an easy one to take. It will require an open mind, and a willingness to unlearn many of the misconceptions taught in popular culture and "history" books. Thank you, Dr. Linwood and Ms. Daniel for enlightening me. I hope to take the lessons I have learned and apply them in my classroom.

The True Story of Pocahontas: The Other Side of History 14. März 2007
Von Deborah Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The book tells a "new" story to me from the standpoint of the Powhatan Indians of Virginia. I enjoyed learning of Pocahontas from the viewpoint of her ancestors. This oral history of her life was enlightening. It made me rethink how my English ancestors behaved and how they may not have been as truthful and honest to a trusting Powhatan Indian Chief, Pocahontas's father, to gain successful knowledge about planting and growing crops in the "New World." I also never knew that Pocahontas might have been kidnapped by the settlers. To learn in this book that Pocahontas may have been poisoned in England, where she died, it was very sad.

Great read!

Thanks to Dr. Custalow.

quick read 22. August 2010
Von Joy Baas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a depressing but more realistic view of the short life of Pocahontas. It is not a personalized account, obviously, as no one knows exactly what happened. The fact that her sister and brother-in-law spent time with her, accompanied her to England and returned, pretty much assures us that they knew more than anyone what actually did happen. So the oral history rings true. The book is filled with repetition and almost more about the author and his family than Pocahontas, but if left to just the facts as known, this would be an article or pamphlet and not a book.

Finally the truth! 14. März 2012
Von Brenda - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
As I am a direct descendant of Pocahontas this book certainly sparked my interest. I could not put the book down. I applaud Dr. Custalow for his hard work and the undertaking by taking the initiative to finally put all the rumors and all the fabricated tales of Pocahontas as well as her family and tribe to rest. It certainly makes you feel ashamed at how those proclaiming to be Christians yet acted so selfish, devious and cruel to those who only tried to help them to adjust and begin their lives in the new world. What an injustice to those who were here first.
A must read for those who seek the truth.

God Bless!

Much to ponder... 6. Juli 2010
Von R. Tom - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Wow! So many details to think about after reading this book. Even if only half of it were true, it still blows away much of the myth I learned in school about this courageous (although for different reasons that originally thought) young woman named Pocahontas. And so much of it makes sense.

For example, the idea that Pocahontas traveled freely and often to visit the English settlement is taken for granted when reading the typical stories about her. But the book clearly proves that this would be impossible for two reasons: (1) Pocahontas was living 12 miles away from Jamestown and would not travel such a distance as a young girl often and especially in winter and, (2) she would not be allowed to travel there unprotected being she was still a young girl and she was the daughter of the Chief.

Also, the whole incident with Pocahontas supposedly saving Smith from certain death by Chief Wahunsenaca and his men just seems ridiculous now. As stated in the book, Wahunsenaca was in the process of initiating Smith to become a "secular leader or commander" of the English in order to form an alliance between the Powhatan nation and the English. Why then, would Smith have ever claimed he was going to be killed by them when he was about to be made a very important leader instead? One must also wonder why such a brush with death would not have been mentioned by Smith prior to the death of Pocahontas if it really did happen. In addition, the book clearly states that children, including Pocahontas, would not have been permitted to attend any sacred events (where the priests would be present). This would seem reasonable as all societies, even today, still place restrictions on children for admittance to some rituals. So, if Pocahontas were not allowed to attend any sacred events where priests would be present, then it would have been impossible for her to have intervened on Smith's behalf for anything--good or bad.

Reading along futher, I don't doubt Pocahontas experienced many horrible things between the time of her kidnapping and her untimely death in England. As a Christian, I am heart-broken to read all of what she most likely suffered at the hands of the Jamestown colony residents. It is shameful/sinful behavior that many (but not all) of the English people displayed upon arrival in Virginia. I truly hope her acceptance of Christ was sincere and not just to please her captors or Rolfe. It is possible that, since she seems to have hit rock-bottom during this time, her heart became genuinely open to the Gospel and she did not convert due to "brainwashing".

Equally sad was Rolfe's handing off of Thomas to his relatives in England and his quick return to Virginia immediately following Pocahontas's death. If, as the book mentions, Thomas was not Rolfe's biological child, but Sir Thomas Dale's instead, that would help to explain his lack of true dedication to "his" son after her death. Furthermore, if he plotted to have Pocahontas murdered, as detailed in the book, of course Rolfe would want to leave England sooner rather than later. These pieces are what seem to be missing out of all of the other accounts of Pocahontas's life.

Upon completion of this book, I can only admire Pocahontas even more for her display of courage and poise on her trip to England than I did before. This is despite all she had experienced up to this point in her young life! She was a remarkable young woman who had her life tragically cut short due to the greed and selfishness of others but in the process, left all of us a true picture of what it means to be great.
