This old western classic is a Giant of a good read with a powerful storyline! (movie is next)
Update: July 31, 2015
There are some wild and crazy good characters in this book and movie, but James Dean really stands out in the movie as a drunken ranch hand turned oil tycoon.....What A Performance! The movie begins differently than the book and has a much better ending. Must read more Edna Ferber!
Booker Prize Winner 1952.
