Beyond the Bear. Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site.

Episode 216,   Apr 01, 04:00 AM

Hugh Glass is best known for his incredible survival story. After being mauled by a grizzly, being left for dead and dragging himself nearly 250 miles across the country - his story, or at least a version of it, has been immortalized in the film The Revenant. But Hugh’s life goes beyond his encounter with the bear - what came before and after are just as wild as a ride, and are worth movies of their own.
