Actor writes book about Mount Rushmore letters

PIERRE (AP) — An actor best known for his role on "General Hospital" has written a book about his parents' connection to Mount Rushmore.

Former soap opera star Richard Cerasani's piece is called "Love Letters from Mount Rushmore: The Story of a Marriage, a Monument, and a Moment in History."

The story centers on his father, who was sculptor and artist who worked on Mount Rushmore for six months in 1940 and stayed connected to his wife through daily letters.

The book is available for $29.95 at most book stores and through the South Dakota Historical Society Press.

Cerasani was made famous by his role as villain Bill Watson on "General Hospital."
