This poem tells the story of a great American Hero,Hugh Glass . This poem was the inspiration for the book, which was turnned into the film,The Revenant . The story that made Leonardo Dicaprio win an Oscar. The story begins in 1823 , just after the Leavenworth campaign against the Arikara Indians , and follows an expedition of Major Andrew Henry during a series of arduous journeys over the Trans-Missouri region. The poem describes the friendship that springs up between two trappers , an older man named Hugh Glass, and a younger named Jamie,who fight, scout and hunt together in the wilds. The story is set when Jamie and a companion betray Hugh: Hugh is abandoned , alive, and badly wounded , to die by the Missouri; to allow Jamie and his companion to safely flee the enmity of hostile Indians in the vicinity. Jamie and his fellow cover their cowardice with a specious lie: that they left only after Hugh died of natural causes, whereupon they first buried him before riding north to rejoin the trapping-party. But against all odds ,Hugh survives. Regaining consciousness and finding himself alone, Hugh shrewdly deduces the identity of those who betrayed him. Then ,fired by a relentless hate to punish those who left him to die .Hugh claws his painful way back to the land of the living: but only to set out to track down his betrayers and deal out some requisite summary justice.
