The Saga of Hugh Glass: Pirate, Pawnee, and Mountain Man by John Myers Myers
Publisher: BISON BOOKS
Before his most fabulous adventure (celebrated by John G. Neihardt in The Song of Hugh Glass and by Frederick Manfred in Lord Grizzly), Hugh Glass was captured by the buccaneer Jean Lafitte and turned pirate himself until his first chance to escape. Soon he fell prisoner to the Pawnees and lived for four years as one of them before he managed to make his way to St. Louis. Next he joined a group of trappers to open up the fur-rich, Indian-held territory of the Upper Missouri River. Then unfolds the legend of a man who survived under impossible conditions: robbed and left to die by his comrades, he struggled alone, unarmed, and almost mortally wounded through two thousand miles of wilderness.
HE WAS A WHITE MAN, WHOSE STORY WAS SO POWERFUL IT BECAME A TRADITION AMONG THE INDIANS OF THE AMERICAN PLAINS! For most of his thirty-seven years, Hugh Glass lived his life as an ordinary seaman, but in 1817 his ship was captured and he was given the choice to join a pirate crew or die. From that time on his life became an adventure that ranged from the edges of the Caribbean to the heart of the American wilderness! BASED ON A TRUE STORY! Mauled by an enraged grizzly, then robbed and left to die alone, hundreds of miles from civilization, HUGH GLASS is the story of one man whose will to live despite all odds is a testimony to anyone who ever had to face peril and adversity!

I didn't mean to see him naked--it was an accident.It had to be, right?Because Noah McCormick and I have never been anything more than friends. In all the years I've known him, he's never once laid a finger on me. And even though he was a cute lifeguard at 16 and a hotter-than-hell sheriff's deputy at 34, he's always been that protective guy I could trust to keep his hands to himself. I never wanted to mess with that.Until I walked in on him getting out of the shower and saw his hard, muscular body totally bare and dripping wet. At that moment I never wanted to mess with anything so badly in my entire life. I should have covered my eyes. Said I was sorry. At the very least, I could have handed him a towel.After all, I was only in town for a few days, and he was just doing me a favor by escorting me to my sister's wedding. It wasn't a real date. But I didn't apologize. And he didn't cover up.(Talk about a hot mess.)After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we're insatiable.He's made it clear he's not interested in romance. Which is fine with me because I've got a plane ticket back to my real life at the end of the week. It's all in fun...or is it?

Here Lies Hugh Glass: A Mountain Man, a Bear, and the Rise of the American Nation (American Portrait (Hill and Wang)) by Jon T. Coleman
Publisher: Hill and Wang
“A vigorously written meditation on . . . America’s encounter with the wilderness.” —The Wall Street Journal In the summer of 1823, a grizzly bear mauled mountain man Hugh Glass in present-day South Dakota. The animal ripped the trapper up, carving huge hunks from his body. Glass’s companions slew the bear, but his injuries mocked their first aid. Two men would stay behind to bury the corpse when it finally stopped gurgling; the rest would move on. Alone in Indian country, the caretakers quickly lost their nerve. They fled, taking Glass’s gun, knife, and ammunition with them. But Glass wouldn’t die. He began crawling toward Fort Kiowa, hundreds of miles to the east, and as his speed picked up, so did his ire. The bastards who took his gear and left him to rot were going to pay. Here Lies Hugh Glass springs from this legend. The acclaimed historian Jon T. Coleman delves into the accounts left by Glass’s contemporaries and the mythologizers who used his story to advance their literary and filmmaking careers. A spectacle of grit in the face of overwhelming odds, Glass sold copy and tickets. But he did much more. Through him, the grievances and frustrations of hired hunters in the early American West bled into the narrative of the nation. A marginal player who nonetheless sheds light on the terrifying drama of life on the frontier, Glass endures as a consummate survivor and a complex example of American manhood. Here Lies Hugh Glass, a vivid, often humorous portrait of a young nation and its growing pains, is a Western history like no other.
