The extraordinary story of the Powhatan chief who waged a lifelong struggle to drive European settlers from his homeland
In the mid-sixteenth century, Spanish explorers in the Chesapeake Bay kidnapped an Indian child and took him back to Spain and subsequently to Mexico. The boy converted to Catholicism and after nearly a decade was able to return to his land with a group of Jesuits to establish a mission. Shortly after arriving, he organized a war party that killed them.
In the years that followed, Opechancanough (as the English called him), helped establish the most powerful chiefdom in the mid-Atlantic region. When English settlers founded Virginia in 1607, he fought tirelessly to drive them away, leading to a series of wars that spanned the next forty years the first Anglo-Indian wars in America and came close to destroying the colony.
A Brave and Cunning Prince is the first book to chronicle the life of this remarkable chief, exploring his early...

Not a bad book, but a bit unfocused. I'm not sure there was enough material here to really be a book about Chief Opechanchanough so it winds up being about him and Powhatan and John Smith and the Jamestown colony and and and..... I did learn more about the specific interactions between the colonists and the Indigenous people of the area but this felt like a shorter portion of a bigger story than a finished product to me.

Embarrassingly, the only knowledge I had about the colony of Jamestown was from the bits and pieces I remember watching from Disney's Pocahontas.

Yup.

And so I leaped headfirst into James Horn's A Land as God Made it and kicked ignorance's ass. I now know so much about the infamous colony. The story of James Smith and Pocahontas was not what I thought it was. At all. And the horrendous "Starving Time" that occurred in the colony pushed the colonists into cannibalism! Aside from fleeting moments of peace between the English and the Powhatan Indians, there was constant war. The "Indian Massacre of 1622" left hundreds slaughtered and settlements reduced to ash. And there is so much more.

I found Horns' writing to be simple and eloquent. The history is presented as a narrative and so it was easy to follow the different characters and the flux of events that took place from 1607 onward. I found it all fascinating and was astonished at the fact that the colony eventually flourished despite constantly befalling to sickness, disease and death.

Jamestown's success eventually helped spur the growth of the other colonies and gave birth to the United States that we know today.
