Disney’s Pocahontas, a feature-length animated film, tells the story of a beautiful Indian maiden and her love for a white settler. It’s a romantic story – but the true story is far more interesting than the fantasy version. The white settler was not a glamorous young hulk but a short, red-bearded adventurer of twentyy-seven. And Pocahontas was not a nubile y g young maiden but a twelve-year-old child.
