The Revenant is based on the true story of the trapper Hugh Glass when he is attacked by a grizzly bear. His companions abandon him, taking all of his equipment, not to mention his favourite rifle.
A fantastic story of determination, survival and a man bent on revenge. I thought it was a fantastic book, and I cannot wait to see the movie. - Daniel
