"There is no story like it in all literature and in all history. . . . The greatest and truest hero of all time was once a buckskin man living on the American frontier. Mr. Myers has done a fine job of scholarly research. He offers many new insights as to the true character of the mountain man. And the bibliography is alone worth the price of admission." Frederick Manfred, Chicago News--Frederick Manfred "Chicago News ""
"Myers has done a bang-up job, and when he finishes the reader readily understands why Glass s experience became tradition among the Indians, who far more than most whites knew how to judge, and who appreciated and respected, a real man." Arthur L./I>--Arthur L. Coleman "San Antonio Express ""

I am still intreged to discover more about this man who, I feel, deserves a lot more recognition than he has.
A good point of the book is that it not only provides a biography, but also a brief history of the era and surroundings Hugh Glass lived in.
If you liked this book, I would advise Osborne Russell's "Journal of a Trapper" (ed. Aubrey L Haines", for a follow up to Glass' era. As, Russell's journal begin the year after Glass was killed.
I recommed the book to anybody who is fond of the history of the early colonization of the west.
