About this item

The Adventures of Swiss Family Robinson, Volume 1": "Survival" - A raging storm maroons the close-knit Robinson family and a band of shipwrecked survivors on a remote desert island. But they are not alone! Parsons, a sailor, blames David Robinson (Richard Thomas) for his brother's death, and vows revenge. The family builds a tree house to guard against the island's dangers. "Island of the Gods" - Supernatural adventures beyond their wildest dreams await the Robinson children after David Robinson and his son, Ernst, rescue a tribal King from his treacherous brother. The children become trapped in the Dreamtime, and only a native shaman can rescue them. "The Sign of the Beaver": Academy Award winner Keith Carradine ("Nashville") and Annette O'Toole ("Bridge to Terebithia") head an outstanding cast in this gripping coming of age survival saga in the tradition of "My Side of the Mountain". A colonial family seeks a new life in the uncharted Maine wilderness in 1768. Their hopes, dreams, and survival as a family are put to the supreme test when Will, the father, is forced to leave his thirteen-year-old son, Matt (Brendan Fletcher), alone to protect their claim while Will returns home to retrieve the rest of his family and their belongings. Matt is eager to prove he is not "just a boy," but loneliness, the threat of Indians, a menacing frontiersman (Maury Chaykin) and harsh conditions mark his dangerous vigil. He meets a young Penobscot Indian. Their distrust and hatred slowly turns into friendship that teaches Matt about survival, trust, understanding, and loyalty. The weeks pass into months, and winter approaches with no sign of Matt's family, who have been hit by hardships and tragedy on their way to Maine. Matt must decide whether to wait for them as promised or take shelter with his new Indian friends. "The Treasure Seekers": A terrible doom falls over the house of Bastable! Widower Richard Bastable (Nicholas Farrell, "Chariots of Fire") faces financial ruin if he cannot complete his new invention, a refrigeration machine. With creditors at their doorstep, his five imaginative and mischievous children team up "to restore the fortunes of our house." From the pen of Edith Nesbit ("The Railway Children") comes this classic story about a family that never loses faith in each other. The distinguished cast includes James Wilby ("Howards End") as the family's dashing next door neighbor, a famous explorer, and, in her first major speaking role, eleven-year-old Keira Knightley ("Pirates of the Caribbean"), as "The Princess," who joins the children in their backyard adventures. The entire family will treasure this heartwarming story. "The Legend of Tillamook's Gold": Julie (Suzanne Marie Doyon), a lonely fourteen-year-old, is in for the most amazing summer of her life when she finds an ancient coin on the beach and uncovers a local Native-American legend about a long-lost mountain treasure. With the help of her grandfather (Emmy nominee Max Gail, "Barney Miller") and his friend, Standing Elk (Floyd Red Crow Westerman, "Dances with Wolves"), Julie embarks on a fantastic adventure to find the Tillamook gold.
