The deer have pressed in all around me. They're hungry. They come into the hemlock grove to hide and sleep for the day. They manage the snow so well on their slender hooves. If I was to know that a million years from today, my children's children were to live as I am living in these mountains, I would marry me a wife with slender feet and begin immediately to breed a race with hooves.

This is a wonderful and insightful film. After being told by his father, that the trip to the Mountains in Montana is being cancelled-he decides to run away from home and go to the mountains by himself.
This film would be boring except for one thing- this film is narrated by the boy, Sam (Ted Eccles). throughout the entire film, we get to listen into his thoughts or what he is writing in his journal. Ted Eccles does a GREAT job narrating this film.
The nature scenes are wonderful. After seeing this film, I have a greater appreciation for nature. Sam's ability to interact with other animals (Including his pet raccoon) is remarkable.
I recommend this film for everyone. It will make you think, it will awe-inspire you. You will also learn a new recipe for pancakes and syrup. This film is not to be missed!
