9780007521296: The Revenant

Based on a true story, The Revenant is an epic tale of revenge set in the Rocky Mountains and soon to be a major motion picture, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Rocky Mountains, 1823

Hugh Glass has been imprisoned by pirates, trained by the Pawnee Indians and is now one of the most respected trappers in the Rocky Mountain Fur Company. The company is under threat from the Arikara Indians and rival bands of men, keen to secure their fortune.

John Fitzgerald is a fugitive mercenary. It was a twisted path of murder and theft which led him to the wilderness.

Inspired by stories of the plainsmen, Jim Bridger is a young man who signs up for his own frontier adventure and immediately pledges loyalty to Glass.

When Glass is horrifically mauled by a grizzly bear, Fitzgerald and Bridger are ordered to remain with him until his inevitable death. Fearing an imminent attack by the Arikara, Fitzgerald takes the decision to abandon Glass, stripping him of his prized Anstadt rifle and ordering a reluctant Bridger to follow him.

As Glass watches the men flee, he vows to undertake an epic journey of survival. It is a journey which will see him travel over 3000 miles to seek revenge for the men who betrayed him.

Rocky Mountains, 1823

The trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company live a brutal frontier life. Hugh Glass is one of the most respected men in the company, an experienced frontiersman and an expert tracker.
But when a scouting mission puts Glass face-to-face with a grizzly bear, he is viciously mauled and not expected to survive. Two men from the company are ordered to remain with him until his inevitable death. But, fearing an imminent attack, they abandon Glass, stripping him of his prized rifle and hatchet.

As Glass watches the men flee, he is driven to survive by one all-consuming desire: revenge. With shocking grit and determination, he sets out on a three-thousand-mile journey across the harsh American frontier, to seek revenge on the men who betrayed him.

The Revenant is a remarkable tale of obsession and the lengths that one man will go to for retribution.
