The Revenant By Michael Punke

The Revenant By Michael Punke

the revenant


Hugh Glass isn’t afraid to die. He’s done it once already.

Rocky Mountains, 1823

When expert tracker Glass is viciously mauled by a bear, death seems inevitable. The two men ordered to remain with him until he dies flee, stripping him of his rifle and hatchet and leaving him to die alone.

But soon a grim, horribly scarred figure is seen wandering, asking after two men, one with a gun that seems too good for him…

The Revenant is a remarkable tale of obsession and the lengths that one man will go to for retribution.

My Thoughts:

After hearing about the film, I really wanted to read the book first. The story is told really well and it was interesting to learn about what life was like to venture into the American West. Seeing Hugh Glass go through all his emotions from struggling with pain, the cold and hunger, it really makes you think. This was a gripping read one I wasn’t sure if I would like or not but I did like it. I look forward to seeing the film now.
