Nonfiction. Ever been to Mount Rushmore? If not, you're sure to have at least seen pictures of the iconic U.S. sculpture, carved right into South Dakota's granite mountains, of presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln. Well, Lincoln Borglum got to be up ON those sculptures -- his father, Gutzon Borglum began work on the national monument when Lincoln was a teenager, and the project wasn't finished for another 14 years (in fact, Lincoln had to step in and finish the sculptures because his father died before its completion). In fascinating detail, this book tells the story of how the monument was built (along with Lincoln's story) and gives a clear idea of just how vast a project its construction was.
