First published in 2002, this book of THE Revenant has gained popularity again because of the recently released movie by the same name. I am glad that its release gave me the chance to read this great adventure story that I missed the first time around. Attacked by a grizzly, soon after left to die as his fellow trappers flee an attack by natives, forced to crawl and scoot along to escape capture, Hugh Glass' epic story of survival led him through the winter of 1823-1824 across much of the Great Plains. He forced himself on across two-hundred miles of frozen frontier to the nearest fort. There, he recovered enough to continue his pursuit of the two men who had abandoned him and who had stole his knife and his rifle. Michael Punke's The Revenant dramatizes true events. They lend themselves to a vivid storyline. This reissue, after the novel's first release in 2002, anticipates this autumn's film adaptation now being shot in Alberta, starring Leonardo Di Caprio, directed by Alejandro Inarritu. Punke, a Wyoming-raised and Montana-based lawyer when he wrote this, is now an ambassador to the World Trade Organization. Having written two non-fiction histories of the West, his forte lies with narrative. He adapts the historical record of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company, as he notes in an afterword, to highlight the plot potential in trapper-tracker Glass' tale. The opening scenes as Glass fends off the bear lend themselves to vivid imagery. Slashed across his back, his leg and arm battered, his throat punctured, Glass' scalp is nearly torn away. "The skin was so loose that it was almost like placing a fallen hat on a bald man." --By Mon2 on 1 April 2016
It is a great revenge story. The book may not seem amazing after you see the movie. So I recommend you to read the book first before watching the movie. --By Revanth on 14 March 2016

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe year is 1823, and the trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company live a brutal frontier life. Trapping beaver, they contend daily with the threat of Indian tribes turned warlike over the white men s encroachment on their land, and other prairie foes like the unforgiving landscape and its creatures. Hugh Glass is among the Company s finest men, an experienced frontiersman and an expert tracker. But when a scouting mission puts him face-to-face with a grizzly bear, he is viciously mauled and not expected to survive.The Company s captain dispatches two of his men to stay behind and tend to Glass before he dies, and to give him the respect of a proper burial. When the two men abandon him instead, taking his only means of protecting himself including his precious gun and hatchet with them, Glass is driven to survive by one desire: revenge.With shocking grit and determination, Glass sets out crawling inch by inch across more than three thousand miles of uncharted American frontier, negotiating predators both human and not, the threat of starvation, and the agony of his horrific wounds. In Michael Punke s hauntingly spare and gripping prose, The Revenant is a remarkable tale of obsession, the human will stretched to its limits, and the lengths that one man will go to for retribution.
