The title of this television mini-series and its source 1958 best-selling novel by Nancy Cato of the same name is taken from the from Book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible. It reads: "All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full: unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again" - Ecclesiastes 1:7. See more »
As an adventure mini-series, this is about as good as it gets. I viewed it when it was originally shown on HBO. Sigrid is totally believable in her role as Philadelphia, and the whole production was first rate! See all 400 minutes of it if you can. I highly recommend this mini-series. Amazing that I can't rate it officially, but for you readers/users I will let you know it's a solid 10!
