The Giant Joshua

Maurine Whipple

Western Epics Publications

Literature

Set in the 1860s at Utah’s Dixie Mission, The Giant Joshua is the deeply moving story of a far-flung outpost in the desert where a band of Mormons, like the giant Joshua, fight to survive in an arid land. A young Mormon girl—innocent, tender, courageous—finds herself torn between fear of her older husband and love for his son; between her passionate faith in the stern tenets of Mormonism and her equally passionate desire for beauty and gaiety.

Considered a classic in historical fiction, The Giant Joshua was first published by Houghton Mifflin in 1941.
