exceptional studies and revenues greeted the hardcover book of The titanic wealthy, long island Times bestselling writer Bryan Burrough's spellbinding chronicle of Texas oil.

Hunt, Clint Murchison, and Sid Richardson, all swaggering Texas oil tycoons who owned sprawling ranches and mingled with presidents and Hollywood stars.
