    1. Decent. The biggest problem I had with this book is that it isn't just the story of Mt. Rushmore. John Taliaferro covers the conception, execution and life of America's most recognizable mountain with enthusiasm and affection. He pops off interesting bits of trivia with ease and charm, going just a bit deeper than the standard tour you are likely to find in any guide book. He deftly gives some measure of the monument's scope, good insight into the difficulties faced in making it, and a brisk his [...]

    2. An interesting book with some flaws. There seem to be many compelling stories involved in the creation of Mount Rushmore: history of the South Dakota Black Hills with it's heartbreaking stories of settler vs. native violence, biography of the men who chose to build a grand monument on that spot, biography of the man who managed to create great American art, and the story of a monument itself and it's impact on American history.I'll give John Taliaferro full credit: all of these are important, in [...]

    3. It's enlightening to read a book that causes you to break out your Webster's app every now and then. This is definitely one of those books. Taliaferro is an excellent writer and is able to successfully give you a front row seat in one of the more fascinating stories of American Monuments. He jumps around a little bit in time, which is moderately confusing, but makes up for it with his vast knowledge of the topic. The author leads you through explanations of the political climate of the time as w [...]

    4. Perhaps the most definitve look at one of American's most-visited symbols, this book examines Gutzon Borglum and his single-minded obsession with the Mount Rushmore carving.As the book jacket says, this is a biography of both man and monument. A great read for anyone!

    5. Prepare to have your eyes opened by TRUE history. This is a great example of how flawed genius can hide dark purpose. And STILL not take away from an astounding set of achievements.This book should make most thoughtful Americans wrestle with preconceived notions of patriotism and hidden history.

    6. A bit of a tough read but at least by the end you will know more than you ever needed to about Mt. Rushmore.

    7. Answered a lot of questions from our recent trip, but I was sorry the book seemed to have a negative tone.
