The Virginia Company established the first permanent English settlement in 1607. Life in the colony was not easy. There was a lack of food, unknown diseases, and battles with the native population. The situation was desperate when Chief Powhatan captured Captain John Smith. His daughter, Pocahontas, interceded to spare Smith's life. They began learning each other’s language and customs. The tribe and colonists began to intermingle and attacks stopped. If it were not for the help of the Native Americans, the colonists would not have survived the first harsh winter. Part one of “Pocahontas and the Survival of Jamestown” series. Note: Contains historical artwork and Illustrations with nudity.
