Story of Cam Calloway and his family, who live in a densely wooded area in New England. Cam dreams of building a sanctuary for the geese that fly over the area each year, and he tries several schemes to buy a nearby lake for this santuary. He is thwarted at every attempt, it seems; he and his son try to get enough furs from their trapping venture to get the money, but the bottom falls out of the fur market. He uses the little money they get for a down payment on the lake, thereby losing their house when he can't make the mortgage payment. They move to the lake, where their friends help them build a cabin. A salesman stops in town, and tries to get the people to sell their land for a tourist venture; Cam is outraged at his tactics and takes desperate measures after he himself is tricked.

Old-fashioned, somewhat solemn drama from Disney
29 December 2002 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Do-gooder piece from the Disney Studios, based on the novel "Swiftwater", has a farm family in Vermont at odds with the rest of the town over their attempts to save a flock of geese from game-hunters. Mixes elements of folksy adventure, family melodrama, teen romance, and nature asides but has too little humor. Runs 2 hours-plus, and that's around 30 minutes too much. Beautiful scenery and a good cast (including Brian Keith as the quietly charming head of the house, Vera Miles as his frontier wife, Brandon de Wilde--pulling a James MacArthur--and lovely Linda Evans as the sweethearts), but it's just too lethargic to appeal to kids. For nostalgic adults, an OK outdoor yarn which wears "values" on its sleeve. **1/2 from ****
