This is a thrilling story, based on true events. Follow Hugh Glass as he ventures on his path for revenge after being left for dead, robbed of his belongings. It starts in August of 1823. Hugh Glass is mauled by a Grizzly Bear while working for The Rocky Mountain Fur Company. Luckily, he survives and hangs on to life while the rest of his trapping team goes on. two men are left behind to tend to the dying Glass and give him a proper burial. Instead, they robbed him of his belongings and abandoned him while he was still alive. Intent on revenge, he defies death and travels the countryside to get his retribution. I enjoyed the well written action scenes and how they flowed.
