  The Cardiff Giant
It all began with an argument.The preacher defended every last word in the Bible, even its stories about giants. George Hull, an atheist, promptly hatched his plan. He would expose the foolishness of those who accepted the Bible as literally true. He would discover his own giant.

Scott Tribble tells the story of America's greatest hoax--the Cardiff Giant--and how a small-time confidence man successfully staged one of the biggest sensations in Civil War-era America.

A Colossal Hoax is the first non-fiction book to present the full history of the Cardiff Giant hoax.
