5.0 out of 5 stars Still awaiting It's release on DVD... October 17, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
I can't believe that this movie has never been released on DVD!!! Especially with all of the fame that Kim Cattrall got with her role in Sex and the City...I would think that it would have created more of a demand for the other things that she has acted in, but somehow this one seems to have been lost along the way somewhere! I first saw this movie on television many years back and later rented it on VHS. It left such an impact on me that I have been waiting and watching for it to come out on DVD ever since. It is a very touching movie...A wonderful twist on the traditional Christmas/Nativity story. Following is a description of the movie (written by Jason Ankeny, All Movie Guide):
"Derived from Paul Gallico's novella The Snow Goose, this Christmas fable stars Kris Kristofferson as Jericho Adams, a one-time Indian fighter. On Christmas Eve, he, his wife (Kim Cattrall) and their child are kidnapped by a band of revenge-minded Blackfeet warriors being hunted by the U.S. Cavalry. After Jericho's violent escape plans go awry, it's up to his wife to earn their freedom through more peaceful means: by telling the Nativity story to a tribe who has never before heard it."
~~ I hope that some day they will wise up and reissue this movie on DVD, but for now, I guess those of us who have seen it and love it will just have to keep hunting down and wearing out those VHS copies that are still out there!

5.0 out of 5 stars magnificent period drama April 30, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Miracle in the Wilderness, based on a novella by author Paul Gallico is a visual and moral feast. Beautiful scenery, fantastic performances and a great story have been artfully directed by Kevin James Dobson. This is a movie I would wholeheartedly recommend to any age group , that can be viewed time and time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True to Life Christmas Story November 30, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
It has both comedy and action and a uniqueness of taking the Christmas story and making it understandable to Natives or to strangers who have never known the True Christmas story

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful movie! November 30, 2010
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this moving on TBS years and years ago, and it's still one of my all-time favorite movies. I always felt the capture of the characters was a secondary plot, compared to how Kim and Kris' characters merge the miracle of Christmas from the story of Joseph and Mary and the birth of Jesus to a Native American story the Indians can understand and believe in. Several subtle levels of the understanding of cultures going on in this movie. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone of any age to watch this marvelous movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie November 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have waited for this movie to come out on DVD for years. I first saw this movie on television, years ago and fell in love with it. I purchased the video tape, but no longer have a mqchine to use it with. I was so delighted to find that it was released in DVD. Beautifully told story of the birth of Jesus, but adapted for the American Indian in the 1800s.

Especially appreciated the telling of the Christmas story from a Native American perspective. Shows how all men relate to God in their own way.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Beautiful December 15, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed "Miracle in the Wilderness." It was a well acted, most beautiful and touching story of one pioneer women's faith and how her telling of the story of of the Savior's birth changed the lives of some warrior Indians. I want to watch it again next year and would highly recommend it. I really liked Kris Kristofferson's acting. The gal who played his wife also gave a great performance, as did the calvary leader and the calvary's scout. The chief's acting was also good.
