"There are few books of the Jacobean age that have left such an impact on history and that yet remain so problematical, perhaps more teasing to the scholar than to the general reader. Captain John Smith's history of Virginia, with its stories of Pocahontas, has deeply influenced the American conception of the country's earliest days and made an indelible impression upon American folklore and popular belief, not to mention history."
