Boston, MA, June 03, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- New Word City LLC announces the publication of The New Face of Mount Rushmore, a new eBook by award winning travel writer Tony Perrottet.
The custodians of Mount Rushmore, one of America’s most famous monuments, are trying to come to terms with its controversial past, writes Perrottet. For generations, Native Americans have regarded its presence in the Black Hills of South Dakota as a pointed insult. But thanks to the work of the first Native American superintendent, Mount Rushmore’s grim history has begun to be addressed.
