Rob: So, I've been shocked by a lot of things since I came here.
Tom: Like what? The holes in the roads?
Rob: Of course. But I guess I also had different cultural expectations.
Tom: Did you expect us all to be pious Buddhists?
Rob: Not exactly. But I still don't really understand the religion here.
Tom: You must know that in China, Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism all blended.
Rob: They all look indistinguishable now. I know the history, but I can't see it here.

Shortly after Borglum began blasting into the sides of the mountain in 1927, the United States plunged into the Great Depression. During those tough years, jobs were hard to come by. When the work first started on the mountain, people here didn't have jobs of any kind. They were willing to work for anything. And, Borglum trained them and they stayed with him through thick and thin. Over the next decade, four hundred local men lived on the mountain top.

1927年,博格勒姆在山壁破土开工后不久,美国陷入了大萧条。在那个艰难的年代,很难找到工作。山上的工程刚开始时,这里的人没有任何工作可做。他们愿意做任何事情。博格勒姆对他们进行了培训,大家在一起同甘共苦。在此后的10年间,400名当地人在山顶风餐露宿。
