History on the Lawn: Hugh Glass: Grizzly Survivor
August 18, 2017 -- ( 12:00 - 1:00 PM )
Author and historian, James McLaird, will present the story of Hugh Glass, noting how the legendary tale emerged, but also commenting about the movie, The Revenant, and how the actual Hugh Glass of history is different from that described in popular biographies. McLaird also looks at the grizzly bear itself, examining popular sentiments towards the creature that led to its near-extinction. Bring a lunch and enjoy the Historic Adams House lawn; 12:00 p.m.; admission by donation. In case of inclement weather, the lecture will be moved to the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center (HARCC).
