Summary, etc.:
Squanto is the story of a courageous real-life Native American, who lived in the New England area during the early 1600s, and whose extraordinary adventures and compassion for the plight of the pilgrim settlers in the new world, transformed him into a legendary hero. Cultures collide when English explorers and traders sail to the new world and encounter the friendly native peoples of the land. But the wayfarers violate the Indians' trust by abductiong two braves: Squanto and Epenow whom they intend to take back to England to display as exotic examples of primitive life. Driven by a passion for freedom, Squanto makes a dramatic escape, and against nearly impossible odds, survives a long and perilous journey back to his homeland. Upon his return, however, he discovers that everything has changed during his absence. His noble tribe has been wiped out by disease and the Mayflower Pilgrims have settled into what little remains of Squanto's village. Squanto must summon all he's learned over the course of his travels, to help himself and the remaining colonists survive, and co-exist with the native residents of the new world.
