The tumultuous settlement of the New World and the crossing of its two cultures form the backdrop for this sweeping saga of a courageous pioneer woman.
Mary Ingles (Sheryl Lee, TV's One Tree Hill) is pregnant when she and her young son are captured from their homestead in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains by Shawnee Indians. After giving birth, Mary finds herself falling for Wildcat, the Shawnee chief, but is determined to return home to her husband. Separated from her children after being sold, Mary convinces a fellow captive (Ellen Burstyn, The Fountain) to escape with her; and with unwavering resolve, she leads them on the journey of a lifetime—a journey home.

The cast was excellent and the scenery gorgeous. Sheryl Lee was perfect. She portrayed a strong, loving, independent woman who possessed humor and drive; exactly the type of person who could endure what Mary Ingles did. Ellen Burstyn is always good. Eric Schweig was very believable and charismatic.
The fact that on their journey home they only had one blanket, were starving, exhausted and practically losing their minds was quite apparent. I don't think that it was necessary, or possible, to show the total misery in the detail a book would, (we don't need to see them naked and lose 30 pounds to understand their plight) nor do I think that one should expect that a Hallmark film would even attempt to do so. Instead they made a beautiful, entertaining, uplifting movie, and that's enough for me.
