An Inspiring Story of Family Courage

This book presents the true and courageous adventures of seven children orphaned on the Oregon Trail.

With great excitement, the Sager family packed their most important goods into a covered wagon and joined hundreds of others for the journey west in the spring of 1844. However, dreams of a better life would not come true for them, as both parents died and were buried along the trail.

Could the children make it to Oregon? And if they did, would they be able to stay together as a family? Follow the children on their way as they brave starvation, disease, cold, crippling accidents, and finally, an Indian massacre.

The Stout-Hearted Seven November 1, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
The Stout-Hearted Seven - Orphaned on the Oregon Trail is a very interesting story about 7 children who were orphaned on the way to Oregon.  This story depicts the trials that they faced along the way.  The children were then taken in by the missionaries, Marcus and Narcissa Whitman.  I would caution about sharing this book with younger children, as it also tells of the murder of the Whitmans and the Sager boys, at the hands of the Indians.  This is a good historical story at an excellent price.
