Here Lies Hugh Glass

The true story behind The Revenant. The book takes on the myth of a man made famous by nearly being eaten by a bear. “If I am ever bitten by a bear, left for dead, forced to crawl home, and then cannibalized by nineteenth-century writers, I hope that Jon T. Coleman writes about me.” Historian Anne Farrar Hyde, Journal of American History
