An ongoing concern of mine is trying to make sense of the phenomenon whereby the book by Linwood Custalow and Angela Daniel, The True Story of Pocahontas (2007; link).continues to appear in bibliographies and source lists despite the fact that it's a mix of history and fake "sacred oral history." Another way to describe the book is pseudohistory. I don't really have enough background and information to make a decent article on this topic yet, but I thought that if I studied historical theory, I might better understand how this book fits into the mix. Additionally, I have long been interested in the topic of literary hoaxes, and since I regard True Story as a variation of that, I need a place to post quotes and information that touch on this aspect of the book. For now, this page is just a wall of sticky notes on both of these topics.
