I hope you don't mind hearing back from a vendor! We carry "Sign of the
Beaver", and sell it for $29.95. The video stars Keith Carradine and
Annette O'Toole and runs 100 min's. By the way, it is one of our
best-selling titles!

Subject: Juv. book into movie/video?

A fellow staff member has asked me to see if anyone out there
can answer
these questions: Has the juvenile book "Sign of the Beaver" by
George Speare (c1983), ever been made into a movie? And, if so,
is the
movie available on video and from whom?

The story is historical fiction about a boy befriended by
Indians. It is
not listed in either edition of "Filmed Books and Plays" and we
have not
been able to find any references in Bowker by the name of the
Possibly the movie title was different(?) Could this have been
an 'ABC
Afterschool Special'? Any help would be appreciated; thanks in
