In August of 1823, Hugh Glass was on a hunting expedition for the Rocky Mountain Fur Company when he was brutally attacked and mauled by a grizzly bear. Fearful of an imminent Indian attack and certain that Hugh was at the point of death, the two trappers who had volunteered to stay behind abandoned him without food, supplies, or weapons.

But Hugh Glass did not die. He revived and, sustained only by his inner grit, his frontiersman's wits, and his burning desire to avenge himself on his two companions, he began a perilous crawl through the hostile wilderness of present-day South Dakota to the nearest settlement two hundred miles away. Fraught with periods of hunger and pain, filled with harrowing exploits, Hugh's journey was an incessant struggle for survival.

This historical adventure novel covers the most dramatic year in the life of one of the Old West's legendary figures. Carefully researched, vividly told, it captures an unforgettable era in America's past and brings to life a colorful personality for modern readers.
