York : Scholastic, 1954.
Sager was not thrilled with having to take orders from anyone on his family's
trip from Missouri to Oregon in 1844. Things didn't get any easier when
his parents died. From his first attempt at running away -- which left
him literally nude in thorn-bush country -- and his humiliating rescue
by Kit Carson to his own rescue of his aunt and uncle a thousand miles
later, we learn what John had to do in order to survive the wilderness
on his way to his dream.
