A boy and his German Shepherd go to Alaska
3 February 2001 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Good dramatization of the old London novel. After a falling out with his timber magnate father, a young man heads for Alaska ostensibly looking for gold. Along the way he befriends a mistreated dog and is befriended by a mistrustful indian. After many adventures the pair lay claim to an abandoned gold mine and this is where the young man finally realizes the underlying reasons for his journey to the far north. Much of this film is corny and unrealistic, however, it is still an entertaining hour and a half. The Canadian landscape is lush and beautiful.
