The Stout-hearted Seven Orphaned on the Oregon Trail by Neta Lohnes Frazier


The Stout-hearted Seven Orphaned on the Oregon Trail by Neta Lohnes Frazier

Based on a true story originally written by one of the survivors, this account of seven children travelling 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 parents succumbed to fever, orphaning the youngsters - one just a newborn. The entire wagon train adopted them and they settled into an ordinary life...until the day of an Indian massacre. The bravery of the Stouthearted Seven will amaze today's young readers.
