Hugh Glass found his head inside the mouth of a big blond Griz, then thrown like a rag doll, ending up on the ground with a gash down his entire body, head to ankle. With Glass near death, the other hunters were going to remain with Glass until he died. Instead, they left him after a day, thinking he was sure to pass. Glass didn’t. Alone, he crawled 325 miles to Fort Atkinson and survived, only to be killed by Arikaras 10 years later along the Yellowstone.
