A thrilling tale of betrayal and revenge set against the nineteenth-century American frontier, the astonishing story of real-life trapper and frontiersman Hugh Glass.
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 don't know why a previous reviewer was bashing the narrator..i thought he did a fine job. Based on that one review I hesitated to purchase this book. I'm glad I got past my initial misgivings. Give this book a listen. In my opinion this is a very solid 4/5 Star book.

Good book, movie better?
I know the movie is not everyone's cup of tea, but I found it very strong and worthy of repeat viewings. Reading the book will certainly enrich my future viewings, of which there will be many. I've already watched it three times. The motivations for revenge are stronger in the film and they took many liberties with additional story elements. This all said, I highly recommended the book to anyone who loves the movie as much as I do and wants to spend more time in that world.
