The legacy of Mount Rushmore is and will always be the contributions to America of the four great men encased in that mountain's granite – Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt. However, imagine if these American icons could mysteriously come alive, and travel through today's Middle America to view and hear the country's moods and problems. This story then gives them the privilege of presenting their observations and wisdom to a joint session of Congress. They preach common sense, integrity, fiscal solutions and cooperation to the current Congress, a Congress that many consider to be totally dysfunctional.
Each president is given a new identity and they travel incognito through countryside and city, experiencing emotional encounters and humorous scenes. They each visit their family homes and relate some unique American history to their escorting hosts, for instance, George Washington to Mount Vernon and Jefferson at Monticello. A concurrent story thread involves the Sioux Indian Nation and their ongoing attempt to regain ownership of the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore.
This book is admittedly surreal, but is intended to entertain while emphasizing the need to retain Constitutional Law, protect our precious American freedoms and honor the traditional pursuit of life, liberty and happiness in a society that seems to be more contentious than it need be, much more divided than it should be. No one book can change the future, but it can try.
