He started class by giving a particularly rambling review of the last class. Blah, blah, blah. The aerial photograph thing is due next week. B: Forest Clearance by Homesteading -Oh, now we’re talking about romanticized views of homesteaders and how wrong that is. I can get behind this. “That view is a load of romantic horseshit .” He’s getting passionate. -Something about bones that isn’t important. “You can’t build a human body on cornmeal.” -He’s talking about when homesteaders died/the state in which they died. Doesn’t look good. -shocking no one, women were particularly likely to die in childbirth. -”Hard, grubby existence that killed people young.” -Basil Hall, 1827 -Rather than pull out the stumps of old-growth forests, Hall noted that they just left them there. The girdled, charred remains of trees! Other Interactions with Forest: -meat (food; white-tailed deer) -skin/fur (clothing, activities around farmstead, etc) (cash) -medicinal herbs (cash/remedies) (ginseng root) -potash (ash + grease = soap) -honey (sweet!) -maple sugar (sweet!) -Oh, now he’s walking us through the scientific sugar maple process. “It’s just trying to do tree things, live it’s life.” -firewood!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
