American history teacher John Butler along with his wife Kim and their two children Katie and Greg, as well as their dog Digger, are on a rafting trip on the Amazon river. As they are going down the river, their boat gets caught in a dangerous current and capsizes. When they surface they find themselves in a prehistoric valley where they meet caveman Gorak, his wife Gara and their two children Lok and Tana. The two families soon become friends and Gorak and his family help the Butlers in their many attempts to find a way to return home while trying to survive in the valley. Written by

This was pretty good from what I remember, same old plot as Land of the Lost-but they seemed to take care to stay away from the shrill campiness of that particular show. I remember as a kid liking it, they seemed to work in some morales and psuedo-geological lessons amongst the action.
Plus the pet mini-stegosaurus was kinda cute too...
**1/2 outta ****, it worked...
