A wonderful treasure that you must see. I fell in love with this movie when I was ten years old and saw it on T.V. Twenty years later paid about $80.00 to order one and still love it just as much today. The cast is absolutely excellent in it, and very natural. The cinematography is excellent with beautiful scenery. It really draws you in and you feel like you are a part of Olives life, which was an amazing journey and story of survival. The movie is suitable for the family (just maybe not younger ones as they may become frightened with a couple of scenes) and may help teach todays generation the difficulties of the previous generations, as is shown in the birth, hospital, wilderness, depression, and other scenes throughout. Definitely watch this movie if you get the chance.
