Storyline

Both a documentary and a comedy. It features a man on a canoe tour of the Great Lakes while the geological time frame changes around him. He finds himself atop the great glacier, and then suddenly falling from the sky as it is removed. His canoe teeters from a cliff after the shoreline vanishes. He sips pure water from the lake as it suddenly changes to a modern polluted state. Written by Andrew Baird-Kerr <andrewbk@networx.on.ca>

Will always have memories of this one....
21 September 2004 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

I too, will always remember this movie. I remember watching this film in my fifth grade class back in the early 70's. I sometimes wonder if I will ever see it again. I keep hoping I will stumble upon it on video, or see it late night on PBS, Learning Channel, Discovery, or something!!! They just don't make em' like that anymore. Very educational!!! I will always remember the pioneer man paddling in a canoe, and going from a calm lake to a frozen one.

And then in the next scene(s) drinking clean water from the lake out of his cup and then the water becomes all polluted. Also paddling across the lake and then all of a sudden free-falling a thousand feet out of the air due the the recession of the lake. I will always cherish this one forever. If I never see it again, I will always have fond memories of it!
