Lord Grizzly is a 1954 biographical novel by Frederick Manfred. It describes the survival ordeal of a real mountain man, Hugh Glass, who was attacked by a bear and abandoned in the wilderness by his companions (a young Jim Bridger and John S. Fitzpatrick), on the assumption he could not possibly live. Glass, with a broken leg and open wounds, had to crawl most of the way to Fort Kiowa to reach safety. When crawling back, Hugh could only dwell on revenge to the men who abandoned him.

Freya Manfred is the author of the memoir Frederick Manfred: A Daughter Remembers and six books of poetry, including My Only Home and Swimming With A Hundred Year Old Snapping Turtle. Country of Publication.

The country changed r valleys with deep eroding ocher gullies. It was shortgrass country: good soil, little or no cactus, very few stones; a minimum of wild salt. It lacked only rain, and rain at the right time, to become the Garden of Eden at last, the wild lily of the valley of men’s dreams.

Frederick Feikema Manfred (January 6, 1912 – September 7, 1994) was a noted Western author. Manfred's novels are very much connected to his native region. His stories involve the American Midlands, and the prairies of the West. He fictionalized this period in his book Boy Almighty, published under the name Feike Feikema. Manfred published The Primitive, the first novel in his World's Wanderer trilogy, in 1949. Lord Grizzly, the first of The Buckskin Man Tales, was the first work Manfred published under his new name. It was a best seller and one of the finalists for the National Book Award in 1954.

  • I loved this story very much. I read the Revenant and didn't want it to end so I took this book up next and I have to say I couldn't put the book down. You get used to Manfred's writing style as you read along. I love the part where they feast on buffalo, felt like I was right there feasting with em. Manfred describes it so you feel like you are there. I didn't want this book to end, I am definitely gonna purchase more books written by Frederick Manfred. Get this book, you won't be disappointed.

  • This book wouldn't be for everyone but I found it to be fascinating. I love that it is written with a definite flavor for the time period it covers. It takes a bit to get used to how they talked but it really grows on you. I think Hugh Glass was absolutely fascinating and I believe the author did a pretty good job. Obviously, the author had to fill in a lot blanks since there isn't much actual documentation about what happened in the time covered in this book but I believe he did a good job.

  • There is a lot of controversy over the story of Hugh Glass. I read the book not for historical accuracy, but the basic story of Glass surviving a near fatal grizzly attack and getting back to Fort Kiowa some 200 mile journey. The story "drags" until Glass is attacked by the grizzly, after that the story moves quickly. Reading information on Wikipedia about Hugh Glass you would think he make the whole journey crawling, however much of the journey was in a dugout boat that Glass constructed. The book is entertaining if not totally historically accurate.

  • This book is awesome. The writing style of Manfred is unique. The book is written in the speaking style of the period. That for me really makes me feel closer to the story. After seeing both of the popular movies made about this story I really enjoyed this book.

  • This book should be considered a classic! When I saw the movie Revenant, I recognized the plot. With a little research I recalled reading Fredrick Manfred's novel soon after it was published in, I believe, 1954. I just finished reading Lord Grizzly again - 60 years later. In my opinion the book is better than the movie, and has a much better ending.

  • I'm not sure if the word "plot" is one I would use when describing a non-fiction work.

    After seeing the movie, The Revenant, I wanted to read the book because I have hunted in some of the areas described and none were depicted accurately in the movie. There are NO mountains in North Dakota or north central South Dakota.

    As I read the book, I felt a bit exhausted with the ever, physical challenge of covering long distances while crawling on one's belly. It is an amazing story and one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

  • Great story about Hugh Glass who survived a Grizzly attack, such as the move 'The Revenant' with Leonardo DeCaprio.

  • Interesting read - a little prolonged perhaps but I thought that the author did a great job of pulling together articles and stories about Hugh Glass from 100 years prior and assembling them into a story of Hugh's ordeal as well as his thoughts before, during and after his ordeal.
