I also really loved this film. I was hooked with the panorama of the Appalachians and then by the cast, the story, and the several themes and corresponding issues these themes raised. Several of these themes have been discussed here before. They are: captivity, wilderness, military history, America's push for independence, 18th century history, Indians, and women on the frontier. There are more I'm sure, but I hope we can keep the discussions going. I have other reasons for being interested in these themes which I'll discuss at another posting. Also I love hanging with you all.
