Before his most fabulous adventure (celebrated by John G. Neihardt in "The Song of Hugh Glass" and by Frederick Manfred in "Lord Grizzly"), Hugh Glass was captured by the buccaneer Jean Lafitte and turned pirate himself until his first chance to escape. Soon he fell prisoner to the Pawnees and lived for four years as one of them before he managed to make his way to St. Louis. Next he joined a group of trappers to open up the fur-rich, Indian-held territory of the Upper Missouri River. Then unfolds the legend of a man who survived under impossible conditions: robbed and left to die by his comrades, he struggled alone, unarmed, and almost mortally wounded through two thousand miles of wilderness.'There is no story like it in all literature and in all history...The greatest and truest hero of all time was once a buckskin man living on the American frontier. Mr. Myers has done a fine job of scholarly research. He offers many new insights as to the true character of the mountain man. And the bibliography is alone worth the price of admission' - Frederick Manfred, "Chicago News". 'Myers has done a bang-up job, and when he finishes the reader readily understands why Glass' experience became tradition among the Indians, who - far more than most whites - knew how to judge, and who appreciated and respected, a real man' - Arthur L. Coleman, "San Antonio Express".
