| A Good Movie for the Middle School Kids - or anyone, really
This movie has a plot just serious enough to keep the 4th - 8th graders hooked, and it's neither too violent for younger kids nor too boring for older ones. When the story begins, a brother and sister who live in the wilderness are discussing their mother's going to help another family where someone has a serious disease. She is risking her own health to help out the other family. The son says he wouldn't risk his life to save someone else's; his sister says 'I'd risk mine to save yours.' In a nutshell the sister gets carried away by Indians or some sort of tribe of savages, and her brother goes off in search of her. Along the way he meets Richard Boone who eventually helps him to find his sister. As he reaches her, the tribe of savages is about to kill her for a sacrifice. Will he save her? Don't be too positive; I'll let you watch it and find out for yourself.

The boy learns that contrary to what he said, he really would risk his own life to save that of someone else. I like the fact that this movie has a moral to it, the kind of positive thing to which youngsters ought to be exposed as they grow up. Yes, there's some violence, there's some sadness, but it's of the level that kids can take seriously yet it won't give them nightmares or make them sick. I've seen many a movie not as worthwhile as this one. No, it's not a Western classic, but it's still a good story and an introduction to the genre; after all, this country had a lot of important history in the last half of the 1800's and just seeing some approximations of that era is in itself a bit of a history lesson.
