Camilla Townsend. Pocahontas and the Powhatan Dilemma. The American Portraits Series. New York: Hill and Wang, With this volume, historian Camilla Townsend does not actually put the debate to rest far too many people have grown up watching Disney and Terrence Malick movies to completely stamp out the romanticized version , but she largely succeeds in a rescue of her own: namely that of the Indian girl Amonute her real name from the clutches of the cardboard character Pocahontas. However, its value for the ethnohistorians of seventeenth-century Virginia is limited. This book aims to recapture the humanity that the myth of Pocahontas stole from Amonute.
