    We all know the Pocahontas that Disney depicted in its 1995 motion picture, but her story is far more complicated than any animated motion picture could have ever given us. I recently came across a great piece that is the most in-depth telling of her life that I've ever seen and it definitely opened my eyes up to this fantastic individual. From her times with Captain John Smith to being held for ransom, her life's story is one that sometime the truth is crazier than the myth. Thoughts on Pocahontas and her life?
