Author Seeks Recognition of Unheralded Rushmore Carver

Author Douglas Gladstone started his book project to seek justice for a Mount Rushmore carver who hasn't received near the credit or attention of Gutzon Borglum.  But according to a Rapid City Journal article, he is also seeking justice for himself after his book was rejected by the National Park Service at the monument because of its content he says. However, NPS officials have stated that Gladstone's book was not banned, but was not permitted to be sold in its bookstore due to space limitations.
