the Spring of 2003, a very important landmark in New Hampshire crumbled
to the ground. The Great Stone Face is no more. But back in
the 1800s, the Old Man in the Mountain was a fixture in New Hampshire.
Legend had it that someone would be born in the area who would resemble
the Great Stone Face and that person would be the noblest of them all.
Young Ethan waits his whole life for the prophecy to come true.
Prophecies -- Fiction.
