Synopsis

The story is about a young boy, Dirkie, who is flying with his Uncle Pete across the Kalahari Desert in a small plane, piloted by Uncle Pete, who partway into the flight has a heart attack and partially loses control of the plane. Thanks to his struggles to land safely in the desert even while suffering the heart attack, the crash is not as serious as it might have been otherwise, and, while Pete himself dies, Dirkie and his small pet dog survive, and the bulk of the story follows Dirkie's various adventures while he struggles to survive the harsh desert conditions

The lead actor is actually credited as Dirkie Hayes on the credits of the movie. This has been a very hard to find film for many years. From memory, it is well worth watching. I've rated this film on when I saw it 40 years ago.
