Description
Smith was ready to take his last breath. Suddenly, he felt a slim body slam against his own. It was young Pocahontas. She had thrown herself down and held Smith's "head in her armes and laid her owne upon his to save him from death."

In 1608, Pocahontas saved the life of an English colonist, Captain John Smith. Afterward, she made enormous contributions to the survival of Jamestown by bringing the colonists food and by promoting peace between the Powhatans and the English. Pocahontas lived a relatively short life, but her impact on colonial American history is still felt today.
