Hugh Glass was a mountain man whose most notable events took place from 1822 to 1833. While on a trapping trip with several other men, he was mauled by a mother grizzly. Luckily, Hugh killed the bear but it left him unconscious. When he finally woke up after several days, he is all alone with no rifle or knife and unable to walk. After waiting two days, he decided that he has been abandoned by his companions Fitz and Jim and begins his crawl. He crawls for many nights to reach the safety of Ft. Kiowa. On his journey, Hugh encounters many dangerous Indians and narrowly escapes them. On his journey, the only thing keeping him alive is the thought of getting revenge on the two men that abandoned him.
