When Mount Rushmore suddenly disappears--no more presidents gracing its face--The American Observer sends Emelia Sunlake to give the California perspective.

Emelia wants to put "a white, middle-class, female California perspective" on the experience. But she soon discovers that everyone--white, black, Native and non-Native--sees this strange phenomenon differently.
