Fine in an excellent dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Jacket design by Fred McCarroll. Giant tells the sweeping tale which captures the essence of Texas on a staggering scale as it chronicles the life and times of cattleman Jordan "Bick" Benedict, his naive young society wife, Leslie, and three generations of land-rich sons.
