Anthro 104 Week 6 Reading Review The first thing that grabbed my attention was in the prologue when I read that temperatures can reach -96 degrees F in Northeast Siberia. The coldest temperatures I get exposed to are probably around -20 degrees and I can barely stand that. The fact that the association between reindeer and flying has been around much longer than the typical American ideas about Santa Claus kind of surprised me.

I liked how the book showed the progression of the images of reindeer on the reindeer stones. The drawings start out very vague but then develop into more detailed images.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
