The Bigger Than Life Sculptures In The Badlands

I last visited this area with my parents in 1948. It was that year when Korczak Ziolkowski, born in Boston, self-taught, began the monumental sculpture of Chief Crazy Horse at the invitation of Chief Henry Standing Bear. The work continues.... In '48, at the age of 8 years, I marveled at the sight of the Presidents on Mt. Rushmore. I am particularly happy that T. Roosevelt is there. After viewing these monuments, we enjoyed driving along the "Needles" highway and Custer State Park, which is hosting the annual Buffalo Roundup. We found lodgings in the village of Custer.
