Author: Clyde Robert Bulla

She was dreaming. She heard someone speak her name, and the voice became part of her dream. It was her brother, she thought. Nantaquas was calling her. She began to run. Deep in the woods she found him. He was watching an eagle with its feet caught in a snare. The bird's eyes were fierce and proud. She said, "Let the bird go free, Nantaquas." John Rolfe heard her voice. "Pocahontas?" he said. There was no answer. She would never answer him again. He knelt by the bed and covered his face with his hands. (Ch 26.)

Never before has she been so close to a live eagle. She waited for itto fly. It spread its wings, but it did not rise. Then she saw why. Its feet were caught in a snare... "Look," said Pocahontas. "There is fire in its eyes." She said suddenly, Nantaquas, let the bird go free."... As soon as he was gone, she waved her arms at the eagle. "Fly away," she said. "You could break free if you tried." The snare was of knotted grass. It had been set between a bush and a tree. She gave the bush a shake. The bird opened and closed its beak, but it did not try to fly. "Fly!" she said. The eagle screamed deep in its throat. It beat the air with its wings. (Ch 1.)
