Understanding Story 6

Chang has an unusual job. He maintains the monument carved on Mount Rushmore. The massive monument is four faces of past presidents sculpted on the mountain. Chang does a great job repairing the cracks on the gigantic stone faces.

If Chang feared heights, it would be hard to accomplish this task. Some repairs require that he be suspended from a rope three hundred feet above the ground.
