Spirit of the Eagle
In this wilderness adventure a cartographer and his son head into the wilds to make some maps. They are accompanied by the father's pet eagle. The trouble begins when his son is kidnapped by the villainous One-Eye Hatchett who sells the lad to an Indian village. With the help of his eagle, the father manages to retrieve his son. He and the boy are also befriended by a young Indian girl who ends up following them when a dream tells the father to head West. The film was shot on location in the Oregon wilderness. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Sign of the Otter
John Christian stars in this film as Samuel Todd, a man living in an unstable America, prior to the Revolutionary War. With the advice of an American rebel named Colonel Rose (Dan Haggerty), and the help of an Indian chief called Tekhane (John Weiner), Samuel must find the British commander (Rick Washburn) who captured his son. Even if he succeeds, he will not be able to stop the tumult that is to follow as America begins to fight for its independence. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Baker's Hawk
Baker's Hawk is an old-style Western starring old-style Clint Walker. Burl Ives plays a recluse plagued by vigilantes. Ives is protected by Walker and his son, Lee H. Montgomery, on the basis of the lad's friendship with the old man. Baker's Hawk is based on a novel by Jack Bickham. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Pony Express Rider
Designed for the regional family trade, Pony Express Rider is a fond harkback to the Saturday afternoon westerns of old. Stewart Paterson plays the title character, a young frontiersman hoping to avenge his father's death. He takes a job with the Pony Express mail service in hopes of running across his dad's murderer. The supporting cast is populated with such always-welcome reliables as Joan Caulfield, Henry Wilcoxon, Ken Curtis, Slim Pickens and Dub Taylor. Pony Express Rider was directed by Robert J. Totten, a specialist in episodic television horse operas. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Rugged Gold
In this outdoor adventure, a huge earthquake separates a mother from her family and forces her to embark upon a trek through the dangerous Alaskan wilderness in order to get back to them. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Lost in the Barrens
An orphaned white teen and a Cree Indian boy must put their differences aside to survive when they get lost together in the Canadian wilderness. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
