From the Back Cover:

THE POWHATAN PRINCESS AND THE PALEFACE – SHE IS PREPARED TO LAY DOWN HER LIFE FOR HIM, BUT WILL HE ACCEPT HER LOVE?

John Smith has rejected the path that has been set for him – a quiet life as a gentleman farmer in the England of James I. He dreams of adventure and his dream takes him across Europe, where he suffers the triumphs and hardships of war, from military glory to imprisonment by the cruel Turks. Wherever he goes there are women who long for him to stay, but all the time he knows that something else awaits him, over the seas yet again.

At last, John Smith's destiny takes him to the new colony of Virginia, where he finds joy and bitterness, fulfilment and disaster, where he is a distrusted Paleface and a demi-god, and where he is saved from death by the beautiful, half-wild Pocahontas.
