These are Survival Stories That You Can’t Imagine Happening…Yet They’re Real

Hugh Glass – The Story Behind The Revenant

Another movie based on a real-life survival story is The Revenant . Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, Hugh Glass, was a real person who went through the unimaginable. This is how the real story took place.


He was a mountain man on a fur trapping expedition in August of 1823. The expedition was to go from the Missouri River, up the valley of the Grand River in South Dakota. Glass disturbed a mother grizzly bear with her two cubs and he was violently attacked by the giant bear.

And how he managed to survive is unbelievable.
