In 1868, George Hull heard a sermon proclaiming the US to be the land of Genesis and that when "There were Giants in the earth in those days", those Giants were in America. So Hull, scion of a wealthy New York family of cigar makers, set out to prove that sermon right. Thus was born the Cardiff Giant, a ten-foot-tall fossilized giant "found" on a farm in Cardiff, NY in 1869.

The tale of Goliath and his creator is a witty, raucous, and bawdy tale of American life.
