Before his most fabulous adventure, Hugh Glass was captured by the buccaneer Jean Lafitte and turned pirate himself until his first chance to escape.

Next he joined a group of trappers to open up the fur-rich, Indian-held territory of the Upper Missouri River.

Yesterday I was delirious, and the day before that, or several before that. Tonight, though, I seem to be aware of everything I've ever known ... It's dark, double dark because of the mist that August steams from the Colorado. Yet I can see almost very place I've ever been ... All the men I liked are having drinks with me or yarning around campfires scattered from the Appalachians to the Pacific Coast. All the enemies I've fought are visible beyond the muxxles of guns or the points of knives ... All of the women I've wigwamed with, including the two who demanded the law's bles

"What would I do in Mississippi?" I asked. "What you want to and can." He sat down again and turned toward me. "It's all open. There's a state to be made, and there's a free hand for the fashioner. Half the available land hasn't been claimed now, and there's a new treaty afoot that'll send the Chocktaws west of the river to give the state a vast new territory." He clenched a hand. "That country must and will be settled, and it's better that it be done by Southerners."

The blue-painted wizard appeared and spoke to Finnian. "You let a man die today because you couldn't be bothered!" "It wasn't my business." "You think nothing in life is your business!" the wizard howled. "But I'll make it so tings will be!" Finnian waited alert, ready to kill if the wizard voiced a curse, but he only looked hard and said: "From now on, as long as you stay in my land, you will aid any man or woman in need of help." That didn't sound so bad...'ntil Finnian discovered the whole realm needed help!

?I tell you what I'll do,? he said.?The stage won't be no good to me until Powder Keg amounts to somethin' ... I'll bet a coach and team against what's on the table, draw and show down.? His offer was a sufficient warning of his strength. However, I still liked my aces. A pair of them pack a lot of power in a two-handed game, and I had the feeling that my luck had not run out ... I counted my aces as casually as pounding pulses would permit.?Can you beat 'em?? His face showed me he could not ...?How about loanin' me your pony??
Bravos of the West by John Myers Myers( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bravos of the West is a panoramic history of the development of the West after the Lewis and Clark expedition. Appearing, exiting, and reappearing in this history are trappers, traders, prospectors, gunslingers, missionaries, soldiers, and scientists. Here they are shown trapping beaver, confronting bears, trading, and discovering natural wonders as they advance ever farther into the wilds." "John Myers Myers begins with the struggle for Texas and follows the men and women who came West: the mountain men beyond the mouth of the Yellowstone, the emigrants to Oregon, the fortune hunters to California, the Mormons to Salt Lake, the stagecoaches, express ponies, and steam-engine trains through mountain passes and open country, and the outlaws to all of it. Playing their roles on this huge historical stage are Andrew Jackson, Davy Crockett, Hugh Glass, Jim Bowie, William Ashley, Mike Fink, Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, Thomas Hart Benton, Stephen Austin, Sam Houston, Peg-leg Smith, Mountain Lamb, Marcus and Narcissa Whitman, Jack Swilling, Henry Plummer, Jack Coffee Hays, Deaf Smith, John Charles Fremont, Brigham Young, John Sutter, Sitting Bull, Cynthia Ann Parker, Joaquin Murrieta, and Wild Bill Hickok."--Jacket
