More than a typical family film, this is one of the highest quality "small studio" films I have ever viewed. Providing an excellent blend of history, drama, mystery and a touch of humor. It is a G-rated movie that is highly entertaining for both children and adults.
The producers used rich Imagery and Lighting to heighten the viewer's interest and intrigue, whenever they focused on Mandie during the flashback scenes when the "Indian Story" was being told.
An absolutely outstanding performance was given by Lexi Johnson (who played Mandie, both in this movie and in the first sequel). Her prior experience as a child actor can be seen in both the attention to detail and nuanced expressions she brought to this role.
The entire cast and production deserve much credit for a great effort.
