Adventures of the Wilderness Family 3


The family who went “back to nature” by homesteading in the Colorado Rockies is threatened by possible federal opposition to their mining claims on the land they moved to.

Dove Review

“Adventures of the Wilderness Family 3” features breathtaking scenes of nature and animals—everything from a skunk to a mountain lion, a grizzly and black bear, wolves, raccoons, and more.

Skip Robinson (Robert Logan) moves his family to inherited land, but Skip is unaware that there is a condition which demands that the land be worked, which comes down to the mining of the land. A government man comes to see him. The family sold their possessions in California to move to the wilderness, and they sure didn’t see the regulations and this new development coming.

Themes include endurance, love, respect and the fact that unity in achieving a goal is vital. We are pleased to award the film our Dove Seal for ages 12-plus. This movie is basically a twist on the classic “Swiss Family Robinson” story and is nicely done.
