Join us for the 5th Annual Hugh Glass Rendezvous on August 22-25, 2019 in Lemmon, SD as we remember the amazing story of Hugh Glass and his trek back to civilization. With the wealth of local history in Western South Dakota and the release of Hollywood’s take on Glass with Alejandro Iñárritu’s critically acclaimed The Revenant starring Leonardo Dicaprio, there’s no better time to take a trip into the past.
