“[A] vigorously written meditation on 19th-century America's encounter with the wilderness.” ―Michael J. Ybarra, The Wall Street Journal

“Richly told . . . [Coleman] masterfully mines what scant life poor Glass left behind (one letter to the parents of a companion killed by the Arikara Indians) to argue convincingly that the bear attack story is one of the contributing factors in how Americans have come to think of themselves.” ―Stephen J. Lyons, Minneapolis Star Tribune

“[Coleman's] writing is certainly audacious, not just in his colorful language . . . but also in his willingness to discard traditional disciplinary boundaries and in his exuberant mixing of history, folklore, literature, popular culture, and the natural sciences.” ―Nathan E. Bender, Library Journal

“[Coleman] shines a pure light on the actual conditions of the working man in the American West, on the fundamental relation between men, animals, and Native Americans, and on the many rascals and scamps, not to mention confidence men and counterfeiters, who are the real source of our greatest national myths.” ―Gaylord Dold, The Wichita Eagle

“In this harrowing and beautifully written book, Jon T. Coleman shows us how backwoods workers experienced a West that left them scarred and mutilated. These are the raw (and bloody) materials for America's tall tales, epic boasts, dime novels, and Wild West medicine shows.” ―Scott Nelson, Legum Professor of History, College of William & Mary

“Almost killed by a grizzly, almost erased by the passage of time, Hugh Glass is resurrected by Jon T. Coleman in this wise and witty book. The American encounter with the dangers of the natural world will never look quite the same again.” ―Karl Jacoby, Professor of History, Brown University

“Jon T. Coleman steers the horrendous story of Hugh Glass through the frontier writer James Hall, Herman Melville's ubiquitous Confidence Man, modern-day survivalism, advertisements for runaways, Richard Henry Dana, Henry David Thoreau, the social lives of grizzly bears, Timothy Flint, Davy Crockett, transnationality, a workingman's history of the fur trade, and much more as he uncovers and adds to Americans' long and unfinished conversation about the West. Some readers will disagree with him, but all of them will have a good time.” ―Paul E. Johnson, Distinguished Professor of History Emeritus, University of South Carolina

“Chomp on Jon T. Coleman's Here Lies Hugh Glass, but beware: it may bite back. The book is a dazzling meditation on men as meat and how we cook up history. Even if you cannot swallow the bear whole, Coleman serves up fricasseed fabulists, the remains of a gnarly mountain man to gnaw on, and a literary feast to digest. Enjoy.” ―Thomas P. Slaughter, Arthur R. Miller Professor of History, University of Rochester

“This fascinating, wonderfully written book makes you think and makes you laugh. Jon T. Coleman tracks the many tales and few facts that surround the legend of Hugh Glass, whose improbable survival and quest for revenge crawls off the page and stays in your head.” ―Clyde A. Milner II, coauthor of As Big as the West: The Pioneer Life of Granville Stuart and coeditor of The Oxford History of the American West
