Book Recommendation: The Revenant, A Novel of Revenge by Michael Punke

 

The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge (2002) by Michael Punke was adapted into film as The Revenant (2015), directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, with a screenplay by Iñárritu and Mark L. Smith, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy. This is an easy book to read and you may also wish to see the movie.

 

Goodreads ReviewThe Revenant, A Novel of Revenge

“The year is 1823, and the trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company live a brutal frontier life. 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. Two company men are dispatched to stay behind and tend to Glass before he dies. When the men abandon him instead, Glass is driven to survive by one desire: revenge. With shocking grit and determination, Glass sets out, crawling at first, across hundreds of miles of uncharted American frontier. Based on a true story, 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.”

I really do want to see this movie. Thanks for shedding some light on the story. I haven't heard too much about it. I've just seen trailers. I guess this is based on a true story.
