Keith Carradine and Annette O'Toole star in this historical family drama adapted from the Newbery Honor novel, The Sign of the Beaver, by Elizabeth George Speare. It's 1768, and a colonial family is seeking a new life in the wilderness of Maine. The father must reluctantly leave 13-year-old Matt alone in the wilderness to hold the land claim until he can return with the rest of the family. When the family is detained for months by a deadly epidemic, Matt's chances of survival become slimmer and slimmer. He is saved by the Penobscot Indians, who teach him survival skills and lessons of trust and friendship. An excellent cast, fine script, and gripping story make this an ideal film for the whole family. It can also spark discussions about the values of loyalty, life in colonial times, and the Indians' forced evacuation of their lands. Alternate video title: The Sign of the Beaver. --Elisabeth Keating
