Good presentation of simple facts about Pocahontas; however, the illustrations are seriously misleading. Native Americans did not dress half-naked in the dead of winter when the swamps were frozen over with ice. I had to constantly remind my 2nd grader of this error in the illustrations because she kept asking "How can they survive like that in the snow? Why aren't they wearing clothes when it's so cold outside?" Also, while the ending is more or less true (Pocahontas lived in England the rest of her days), she was heading back home but became ill and died. She did not grow old in England, never wanting to return. Rather misleading choice of words for the ending.
