My problem with this narrative is that it should be titled John Smith My Own Story Still a fascinating look into agendized history.
My problem with this narrative is that it should be titled John Smith My Own Story Still a fascinating look into agendized history.
Interesting for its historical value which has an obvious agenda , though very little is about Pocahontas And John Smith obviously has a colonialist mentality and slant So it should be read Pocahontas: My Own Story with that understanding and context.

Less from John Smith about his encounters with Pocahontas andhear say from a bunch of other racist white dudes during a period of colonization.
The sections seemed disjointed, but it is pretty amazing to read Pocahontas: My Own Story the first person account of John Smith s interactions with the Powhatan people 300 years ago I m pretty sure that most people aren t aware that Pocahontas was kidnapped and held hostage I m not judging The settlers had reasons for their actions As always, the true story is complicated with.
.
truth.
