The Revenant Michael Punke read online review & book description:


The 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.

    This book is an entertaining historically based novel. The movie parallels the book but is very different. If you live in the Rocky Mountain states you will recognize many of the names of people and places.
  • Great Read, but...

    The Revenant is a artfully written book that features perfectly crafted highs and lows concerning Hugh Glass. However, the ending in my opinion was absolute trash!!

    Wonderful story that captured my attention wholly and throughout the entire book. I had to seek definitions of seldom used, never heard of, or old words every 5th page. I relish the opportunity to expand my vocabulary while being highly entertained. Awesome read.

    Excellent book, couldn't put it down once I started reading. Was somewhat letdown by the end until I contemplated it for awhile and realized Hugh Glass found peace with his decision and was pleased with this for him. Hated for it to end, wanted the adventures of Hugh Glass to continue.
