Start with your browser and put in http:/ This will give you a number of publications directly about Pocahontas. About 13. There are lotS more out there but this will help you sort out the fictions about her. I have a good one that is not on this list but that's another story. Her so-called marriage or betrothal to Kartoum is more probably a fiction. She was about 19 when she married Rolfe. If she had been married to someone else it's doubful that Powhaton would have consented to her marriage to Rolfe. The same with the Christian Ministers that the English kept around in their travels. They certainly would have balked. In the early days any other romances were never mentioned so I give no credence to them. Regards; ELTON
