This book is often checked out by 4th grade teachers to help describe what life was like on the Oregon trail and during the Whitman Massacre. This book was written using the accounts of the Sager children's diaries and others in the wagon trail. I was moved when I read that Mrs. Sager didn't even want to leave her home to come out west and she was crushed in a freak wagon accident. The book was more accurate than the movie that was created in the 1970's. I couldn't put the book down. I needed to know more and was driven to pursue the information.

This book is highly recommended for students in the fourth grade who are learning about the Oregon trail and before they visit the Whitman mission in Walla Walla. ( )

Based on the true story of the Sager children in 1840. The children were traveling on the Oregon Trail when their parents got the fever and died, leaving them as Orphans. The 7 children, one of which was just a newborn, were adopted by the other members on the trail. The children are very lucky until the massacre that occurs where many were killed. The seven children were then orphaned again and had to begin to rebuild again.

Orphaned on the oregon trail is a historical non-fiction book. It's sad to learn about all of the bad things that happened to them along the way, but they had a big adventure in the process. I loved this book!! ( )
