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 (one of whom was a young Jim Bridger), 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. Lord Grizzly was Manfred's most successful book, and a finalist for the National Book Award in 1954.
