My memory was sparked tonight as I watched an episode of Northern Exposure, and Chris at KBHR was reading from the book upon which the film was based. It's the story of a Native American child who carves from wood a small toy canoe, then releases it into Lake Superior (actually, a tributary of), where it then proceeds all the way down through the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway to the ocean.

I remember seeing the film in sixth grade, which would've been the 1980-81 school year. And I remember actually watching it on film, projector and screen and all.

It's not long, less than 28 minutes. I thought I'd share it here.
