Helen Rountree is one of the foremost authorities on Virginia's Powhatan Indians. Rountree draws a rich portrait of the lives of the Powhatans in which the land and the seasons governed life and the English were seen not as heroes but as invaders. While Pocahontas may be the most famous Native American, the great chiefs Powhatan and Opecancanough were key players in the story of the English and the Virginia Indians. It was Opecancanough who captured the foreign captain John Smith and delivered him to his brother, the paramount chief Powhatan. It was at Powhatan's village that John Smith met Pocahontas. Paperback. 288 pages. Title: Pocahontas, Powhatan, Opechancanough - Three Indian Lives changed by Jamestown Author: Helen C. Rountree ISBN: 0-8139-2596-7
