Item Description...
Recounts the adventures of the seven Sager children, orphaned during their journey to Oregon where they were adopted by Marcus and Narcissa Whitman.

Publishers Description
Based on a true story originally written by one of the survivors, Neta Lohnes Frazier's account of seven children traveling westward still has the power to astonish. In the 1840s, the Sager family set off on the Oregon Trail, a dangerous and adventure-filled journey. Tragedy struck when both the mother and father succumbed to fever, orphaning the youngsters—one just a newborn. The entire wagon train adopted them, until they arrived at the Whitman Mission in Oregon. There, the Sagers settled into an ordinary life…until the day of an Indian massacre. The bravery of the Stouthearted Seven will amaze today's young readers.

Compelling story, interesting info even for those knowledgeable about Oregon Trail  Feb 20, 2010
I grew up playing the original Oregon Trail, and then as an adult acquired Oregon Trail 2 to play. I love the game, and so I am familiar with much of the trail, but this book had new information even for me.

This is the true story of the Sager family who set out west in 1844. Both parents died on the trip, leaving their seven children orphaned. The wagon train banded together to get the children to the Whitman Mission where they were adopted by the Whitman family. My knowledge of the Whitman mission was that it was near the end of the trail, out of the way, and you only go there if you have money and are desperate for supplies. And that's accurate, but I learned a lot more as a result of this book, including the eventual end of the mission.

This was an enjoyable and informative book for me and my two older children, ages 8 and 6.5. This book contains all the basic information about the Oregon Trail for those who might not be familiar with all the details. The story carried us right along with good characterization and a compelling story. My only peeve is that several times I noticed typos where the wrong word was used like "the" for "then," something spell-check can't take care of. It needed closer editing, but the story was too good for these occasional mistakes to pull the book below 4.5 stars, which I'll round up to 5.
Sterling Point Books: The Stout-Hearted Seven: Orphanced on the Oregon Trail  Jul 8, 2008
Very interesting and well researched book on one family's story about the hardships on the Oregon Trail. Enjoyed it very much. Recommend it to anyone who has an interest in history, especially the Oregon Trail.
Compelling history for adults and kids alike  Apr 16, 2008
I bought this book for my 8-year old son and I to read together because we are both interested in the Oregon Trail. The story is all the more interesting and emotional because it's based on the true story of seven kids who lose both parents as they move west as part of a wagon train. The trials and tribulations of the family and their adoptive parents brings history alive in a way children can relate to, albeit with sadness and tragedy involved. Some very emotional children might have a hard time with the deaths and killing in the story, but the characters' ability to survive it is a great lesson in human resiliency and courage. The fates of the children are included at the end of the book, so the reader's attachment to them is fulfilled by learning of their lives after the story ends.
