The New World

I just finished reading Big Chief Elizabeth, about early English attempts to settle in America (and the PR coup of naming the land to be settled after the Virgin Queen). Amongst other things it deals, in passing, with the true story of Pocahontas- who never had any “mad affair” with Captain Smith, so there. And lo, today I discovered that next year there’s to be a film entitled The New World, ostensibly about the same subject (trailer)
