I have chosen to do my literature review on works that describe early Jamestown’s interactions with Native Americans and vice versa. The first text I have found is “Pocahontas and the English Boys” by Karen Ordahl Kupperman. While the title of the book does sound informal, the contents of the book are purely academic. The main focus of the book is to highlight the important role the young played in the colonizing of Virginia. The book is the most modern work on the subject, being opened to the public in March of this year. The perspective provided by the text is the most interesting part. Kupperman did the work to put together the Native perspective on Jamestown, and it is truly fascinating. Most texts on this topic are western based, and this text provides each sides view and reminds the reader that everyone involved were actually people. My biggest issue with the book is that I want to read every word, not just skim it. I am actually a little excited for this project now, whereas before I got this book, I was dreading it.
