RENNIE, Neil.

Pocahontas, Little Wanton: myth, life and afterlife. , Quaritch 2007

8vo (215 x 140 mm), pp. xii, 209, with 12 full-page illustrations (one folding); title printed in red and black; blue cloth, pictorial dust-jacket. ISBN: 978-0-9550852-6-0.

Note
Pocahontas - meaning 'Little Wanton' or playful one - is famous for the rescue of English colonist John Smith from execution by her father, Powhatan, the Indian paramount chief of the Virginia area. Rennie investigates this legendary rescue and separates the known facts of her life and death in England from the myths surrounding her posthumous history as an American Indian heroine.
