Mount Rushmore is everywhere. Around Presidents Day we are soaked by media using the mountain to sell cars, mattresses and even cell phones. Since I worked on this book for so long people do send me funny Rushmore stuff. I hope they continue to do so.
Fact not in the book: The crew played a game when they came down the 700 steps twice a day.
It was called billy goat and they would see how many steps they could leap over to get to the next ramp.
It is amazing that they never broke their legs.
