I fell in love with this movie 35 years ago!
18 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I fell in love with this movie as a 12 year old. It weaves fictional teenagers into events surrounding the founding of America.

I am just now listening to the original story as a book on tape and really enjoy the fuller version also.

Both the film & the book are recommended!
