    "I feel the same way about this, other races shouldn't be writing about the natives. I don't feel like they have the right."

    "This book is pretty good. It's a mostly fictional account, but it does touch upon topics that actually happened. It's a great way to introduce young readers to who Pocahontas was, as well as the events that took place surrounding her life and her lifetime. "

    "My daughter is really into Pocahontas after seeing the Disney movie. I wanted to get her into the actual history rather than the sensationalized Disney story. I bought her the book, Tidewater to read, and she seems to really enjoy it. It's a historical fiction novel, so it's not actually an accurate portrayal, but it has a lot of historically accurate things in it."

    "Such an exquisite book, such great insight into such an iconic historical figure. Many people don't know her for what she really is, just from briefly reading the Pocahontas book, but the perspective books like this one give are priceless and eyeopening."

    "The Princess Pocahontas is a wonderful fictional novel with illustrations to keep readers engaged. This is more of a classical as it was originally published in 1916 and tells the fictional story of the well known character, Pocahontas."

    "This was a good book but I didn't like how much of the book also focused on John Smith as well. This would be a decent book for school age children to write a report on but wasn't my type of book to read for pleasure or to gain knowledge."
