Sometimes history does not tell you the whole story.

When 8-year-old Lou Del Bianco finds out that his Grandpa Luigi was the Chief Carver on Mount Rushmore, his young life is instantly changed. Follow Lou’s journey as he and his Uncle Caesar make the painful discovery that Luigi is not even mentioned in the most definitive book on Rushmore. Cheer them on as you read the historic documents they unearth from the Library of Congress that not only tell Luigi’s story but also prove his great importance. Finally, ride the roller-coaster of the 25 year journey to get Luigi the recognition he deserves. Out of Rushmore’s Shadow is the dramatic and touching story of Luigi’s legacy and the immigrant’s struggle.

From the Author:

"I have been telling stories for more than 30 years. This story is the one I was meant to tell."

About the Author:

Lou Del Bianco has been an actor, singer and storyteller for 30 years. His children’s recordings, which include original stories and songs of his childhood, have garnered five Parents Choice Awards. Lou’s latest one-man shows feature dramatic portraits of Abraham Lincoln, and Lou’s grandfather, Luigi Del Bianco, Chief Carver on Mount Rushmore. “Abraham Lincoln: From Railsplitter to President” was endorsed by the Lincoln Bicentennial Commission, and “In the Shadow of the Mountain” has been performed at Mount Rushmore. Out of Rushmore’s Shadow was written at the bequest of National Park historians and is Lou’s first non-fiction book. He has also co-authored a young readers’ historical novel and a screenplay about the carving of Mount Rushmore. He and his wife, Camille Linen, live in Port Chester, N.Y.
