Seven Alone


Spring, 1842. America’s unclaimed and unexplored land drew thousands of settlers to the West, including the Sager family. Traveling from Missouri to Oregon, both parents succumbed to the untamed wilderness – the father from blood poisoning, and mother from pneumonia. Their seven children courageously continued the journey their parents began, a feat that truly defines “pioneer.” Here is a heartwarming adventure film for the whole family; this is the amazing story of the Sager children on the Oregon Trail.

Dove Review

As we all know things were tough in the days of the pioneers as they travel west to new land. This is a story of one family’s quest of the new frontier. Filled with the reality of the hardships these families had to endure, this tale tells of a young boy’s commitment to travel on with his siblings after the loss of his parents.

When I was growing up there were many movies such as this one. It portrays the hard life and courage that these people, young and old, had to display to survive this rugged new land. Due to some intense scenes, we award “Seven Alone” the Dove “Family-Approved 12+ Seal.
