The revenant : a novel of revenge by Michael Punke( Book )

98 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in 15 languages and held by 3,614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year is 1823, and the trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company live a brutal frontier life. Trapping beaver, they contend daily with the threat of Indian tribes turned warlike over the white men's encroachment on their land, and other prairie foes -- like the unforgiving landscape and its creatures. Hugh Glass is among the Company's finest men, an experienced frontiersman and an expert tracker. But when a scouting mission puts him face-to-face with a grizzly bear, he is viciously mauled and not expected to survive. The Company's captain dispatches two of his men to stay behind and tend to Glass before he dies, and to give him the respect of a proper burial. When the two men abandon him instead, taking his only means of protecting himself -- including his precious gun and hatchet -- with them, Glass is driven to survive by one desire: revenge. With shocking grit and determination, Glass sets out crawling inch by inch across more than three thousand miles of uncharted American frontier, negotiating predators both human and not, the threat of starvation, and the agony of his horrific wounds. (Based on a true story.)

Fire and brimstone : the North Butte mining disaster of 1917 by Michael Punke( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The worst hard-rock mining disaster in American history began when fire broke out in the North Butte Mining Company's Granite Mountain shaft. Sparked by a tragic accident more than two thousand feet below ground, the fire spewed flames, smoke, and poisonous gas through a labyrinth of tunnels. Within three days, 164 trapped miners were dead. While the disaster is compelling in its own right, this book also tells a broader story. Butte, Montana, on the eve of the North Butte disaster, was a volatile jumble of antiwar protest, an abusive corporate master, seething labor unrest, divisive ethnic tension, and radicalism both left and right. It was a powder keg lacking only a spark, and the mine fire would ignite strikes, murder, ethnic and political witch hunts, occupation by federal troops, and ultimately a battle over presidential power.--From publisher description

Fire and brimstone : the North Butte mining disaster of 1917 by Michael Punke( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, The Revenant--basis for the award-winning motion picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio--tells the remarkable story of the worst hard-rock mining disaster in American history. The worst hard-rock mining disaster in American history began a half hour before midnight on June 8, 1917, when fire broke out in the North Butte Mining Company's Granite Mountain shaft. Sparked more than two thousand feet below ground, the fire spewed flames, smoke, and poisonous gas through a labyrinth of underground tunnels. Within an hour, more than four hundred men would be locked in a battle to survive. Within three days, one hundred and sixty-four of them would be dead. Fire and Brimstone recounts the remarkable stories of both the men below ground and their families above, focusing on two groups of miners who made the incredible decision to entomb themselves to escape the gas. While the disaster is compelling in its own right, Fire and Brimstone also tells a far broader story striking in its contemporary relevance. Butte, Montana, on the eve of the North Butte disaster, was a volatile jumble of antiwar protest, an abusive corporate master, seething labor unrest, divisive ethnic tension, and radicalism both left and right. It was a powder keg lacking only a spark, and the mine fire would ignite strikes, murder, ethnic and political witch hunts, occupation by federal troops, and ultimately a battle over presidential power
Last stand : George Bird Grinnell, the battle to save the buffalo, and the birth of the new west by Michael Punke( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last three decades of the nineteenth century, an American buffalo herd once numbering 30 million animals was reduced to twenty-three. It was the era of Manifest Destiny, a gilded age that viewed the West as nothing more than a treasure chest of resources to be dug up or shot down. Supporting hide hunters was the U.S. Army, which considered the eradication of the buffalo essential to victory in its ongoing war on Native Americans. Into that maelstrom rode young George Bird Grinnell. A scientist and a journalist, a hunter and a conservationist, Grinnell would lead the battle to save the buffalo from extinction. Fighting in the pages of magazines, in Washington's halls of power, and in the frozen valleys of Yellowstone, Grinnell and his allies sought to preserve an icon. Grinnell shared his adventures with some of the greatest and most infamous characters of the American West--from John James Audubon and Buffalo Bill to George Armstrong Custer and Theodore Roosevelt. Last Stand is a strikingly contemporary story: the saga of Grinnell and the buffalo was the first national battle over the environment. Grinnell's legacy includes the birth of the conservation movement as a potent political force

Na podstawie powieści powstał znakomity film z Leonardo Di Caprio w roli głownej! W roku 1823 trzydziestosześcioletni Hugh Glass zaciąga się do oddziału formowanego przez Kompanię Futrzarską Gór Skalistych, który wyrusza na niebezpieczną wyprawę przez dziewicze, niezbadane terytoria. Pewnego dnia zostaje straszliwie poturbowany przez niedźwiedzia grizzly i oddany pod opiekę dwóch ludzi z oddziału- Johna Fitzgeralda, bezwzględnego najemnika oraz młodego Jima Bridgera, przyszłego "Króla ludzi gór". Gdy do ich obozowiska zbliżają się Indianie, Fitzgerald i Bridger pozostawiają Glassa na pastwę losu. Co gorsza, zabierają rannemu broń i całe wyposażenie--wszystko to, co dawałoby mu jakąś szansę na samodzielne przeżycie. Opuszczony, bezbronny i wściekły, Glass składa samemu sobie obietnicę, że przetrwa. I że dokona zemsty."Fascynująca opowieść o heroizmie i obsesyjnym pragnieniu wymierzenia kary".- Publishers Weekly"Zjawa to jedna z najbardziej poruszających, surowych i fascynujących opowieści o samotnej wędrówce, jakie kiedykolwiek czytałem". - Akiva Goldman, scenarzysta filmu Piękny umysł, zdobywca Oscara
