A true life adventure that will inform and entertain you!
29 October 1998 | by (Brea, California, USA) – See all my reviews

This was Disney's first effort to put a true life adventure on the screen. Supposedly it took nine years to make, however, some of the scenes were filmed under controlled conditions. Still, it is certainly worth seeing. For its time, the photography was outstanding. Winston Hibler does his usual fine job narrating.
