There was a prophesy talked of amongst the Native Americans of Virginia - a prophesy that one day a nation would spring from a certain spot on Chesapeake Bay and and destroy them. When ships land there in April 1607, Chief Powhatan wants the intruders killed and when their leader, John Smith, is captured, he orders his execution. But Pocahontas bravely intervenes and persuades her father to befriend the foreigners, learning English to act as translator and helping the newcomers survive the bitter winters in the strange land. But are they to be trusted or will the prophecy come true? Pocahontas learns that bringing two cultures together comes at a cost in this exciting addition to the Before They Were Famous series.
