Obviously, this is not a full length book. I have, and have read the full length book, The Whitman Massacre of 1847 by Catherine, Elizabeth, & Matilda Sager. This is what I would call a companion piece.

The Sager children (there were 7) were survivors, one and all. At least as long as they lived, and were all adopted by the Whitmans. The two boys, Francis and John were killed in the massacre, and the youngest died of the measles shortly thereafter. This story is primarily about the Whitman Massacre. Anyone interested in the history will find this book well written, well presented, and a good read.
