The Cabin in the Clearing: 2 - Besieged
A television play in five episodes.
Adapted by Felix Felton and Susan Ashman from the novel by E. S. Ellis.
Besieged in their log cabin in the Ohio wilderness, with Chief Haw-hu-da and his Shawnee Indians on the warpath outside, Silas Sutherland and his wife and daughter have no choice but to fight on in the hope that help will come from the blockhouse fifty miles away. But outside in the forest, unknown to the Indians, are Brayton Ripley-a young woodsman friend of the family-and Mul-keep-mo, a Miami Indian, whose life Ripley had saved.

Archie at the Waxworks
