Glass was with a fur-trapping party in hostile indian territory and got himself mauled by an angry grizzly. That much was in the trailer
and the rest of the story would be spoilers.

Edit: That's the one, made in 1971 while I was overseas. Zachary Bass = Hugh Glass

By the way, one of the men who abandoned him was supposed to be Jim Bridger.

Just back from seeing 13 Hours.

Bravo Zulu, to those who served and sacrificed and also to those who told the story well.
