The "Stout-Hearted Seven" by Neta Lohnes Frazier is a book about the Sager children. Their parents died on the Oregon Trail. Other people helped them travel and get to the mission at Waiilatpu. The Whitmans took them in where they stayed until the events of 1847.
The book may be used in the classroom. A set of activities related to each chapter has been created for classroom use. As a read aloud, literature circle, or independent reading and study the book may bring about a better understanding of events at Waiilatpu.
