The movie "Rugged Gold" is based on the book O Rugged Land of Gold by Martha Martin, which is loosely auto-biographical based on her own adventures in Alaska. I loved the scenery and the story of adventure, imagining a young injured pregnant wife alone in the little Alaskan cabin for the winter due to a chain of circumstances beyond anyone's control. You can't help but admire her courage as she copes with everything from grizzlies to loneliness to childbirth, all alone. I found this story riveting and highly recommend the movie.
The other two movies are okay, but "Lost in the Barrens" and "Rugged Gold" are my favorites. Somehow I couldn't really get into "Baker's Hawk" much.
