Perrin Whitman was 12 years old and thrilled to travel by wagon train to Oregon territory with his missionary aunt and uncle, Dr. Marcus and Narcissa Whitman. It was 1843, and life in the wild, unsettled Northwest promised Perrin the adventure he craved--but also the opportunity to witness a fierce and tragic battle for peace and freedom. Upon their arrival in Oregon, Perrin found an immediate friend in the young Indian girl, Shikam, whose brother would later become the famous Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe. Both Perrin and Shikam had the same goal: keep peace between white settlers and the Indians. But when another wagon train of emigrants brought measles, the Indians became terrified and angry by the sickness over taking their people. Will Dr. Whitman be able to cure the Indians before war breaks out?
In 1843, twelve-year-old Perrin joins his aunt and uncle, well-known missionaries Dr. Marcus and Narcissa Whitman, in the Oregon Territory where they live with the Nez Perce and Cayuse Indians.
