Corrections, if you please
3 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had to laugh at the remarks of several saying "the cabin was built in one day". That is as ridiculous as the remarks were. The cabin was built over several weeks, those weeks not filmed. The oldest son went with the mountain man to get supplies. It took much longer in those days to get to places. They had no corner markets, 7-11s, etc. Come on. Common sense teaches you that much. What else did they have to do but work on the cabin from sun up to sun down? They sure didn't have a TV to sit and watch. The era they represented was done so accordingly. Do not be critical of this tale. Perhaps a lot more footage was left off. We do not know. I wish the DVD had the extra stuff in it, but it does not.
