Grade 6 Up-- A fictionalized account of a true story. Much older than the other men in the exploring and trapping party he joined in 1823, mountain man Hugh Glass was mauled by a grizzly bear and left by his companions to die. The now famous account of Glass' harrowing recovery and equally harrowing and heroic 200-mile crawl to civilization is so astonishing that it is still told, gripping the attention of hearers and readers. Glass lived adventurously before and after the grizzly clawed and chewed him but there are few verifiable facts about his life. Using what he could find in adult biographies and other sources, McClung has fleshed Glass' life into a vivid story. --George Gleason, Department of English, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield
