Description

From Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edna Ferber, Giant captures the essence of Texas on a staggering scale as it chronicles the life and times of cattleman Jordan "Bick" Benedict, his young society wife, Leslie, and three generations of land-rich sons.

A sensational story of power, love, cattle barons, and oil tycoons, Giant was the basis of the epic 1956 classic film starring James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, and Rock Hudson.
