This a very exciting story that really shows the hard ships of life on the frontier. If you like books about the west, settlement of America, or about struggle and making your dreams happen, this is the book for you. I read this book as an assignment for school and I think it's great for kids around junior high age. The book is set in the 1800's during the settlement of America out west. It is about the 9 member Sager family who are going to Willamette, Oregon. On the way the father and mother die leaving John, the 13 year old son, to take the large family to carry out their father's dreams of starting a one thousand acre farm in Willamette.

Have you ever wondered what really happend on the Oregon Trail? If you are one of those people, then you should read this book. Captain John Sager leads his family on the Oregon Trail to Oregon, but he uncovers dangers with his family, and with the Native Americans. This book has the same type of action to it as "Stones in Water" and another book I read "April Morning". I think that most of the story was factual, and part of it was opinion from the author. I was brought into the main and strongly supporting details, but some of the weak detail wasn't really needed or wasn't that interesting. This is how the story begins. "This is a story of a great pioneer. Aww. I know what you're already thinking. You think that this book is just a biography about somebody. But you are wrong. This is a much better book than those long and boring biographies, but you will still learn a lot about history.

John Sager is the leader of his family on the way to Oregon. He is going to occur mountain crossings and the decisions about crossing rivers and what to do about his sick family. He does a lot of things like his best friend, famous frontiersman, Kit Carson, likes killing deer and other animals to have for lunch.

Our family (with 4 kids) listened to this on tape as we drove through Idaho and Oregon, basically following the Oregon Trail. This book, more than anything else including museums, helped the kids understand the difficulties and dangers of the journey. They (and we their parents) loved it. However there are very negative stereotypes of Native Americans throughout the story which are unacceptable and require discussion.

I'd seen this movie, Seven Alone, made in the 60s, and pretty good considering that. Couldn't wait to read the actual book, written around the turn of the last century. The compelling true story of one young teen's thrust into premature adulthood, forced to set aside his mischievous ways in order to keep his brother and five sisters (one a newborn) safe, as well as bring them west in the early 1800s. Though the book is directed to a younger audience (probably 6th grade and above,) the nearly 100 year old writing is intelligent and interesting enough for readers of all ages. Highly recommend.

This is a great book about a boy and his family who traveled through the Oregon trail, but his dad and mom die of dysentery. After that he has to lead the children along the snake river . It's nothing but exciting.

After watching the movie "Seven Alone" , I bought the book that details the Sager childrens' journey to OR. My children love to read, and they are not disappointed.
