Remember the movie “The Revenant?” It’s the fictional story of real-life mountain man Hugh Glass who survives a grizzly bear attack after being abandoned in the wilds of what would become South Dakota. Glass treks hundreds of miles back to the Missouri River, then up into Montana to try and find the men who abandoned him and get his revenge. Research by Whitehall resident Clay Landry adds a final exclamation note to the story about Glass with an article that was published this fall. Glass, along with two other trappers, was killed by Arikara Indians along the Yellowstone River east of Billings. By examining old fur company record books, Landry was able to clear up what had been some misconceptions about Glass’ death.
