During this time I was an inmate in Mr. During the day we saw several guanacos, and the track ofthe closely-allied species, the Vicuña: this latter animal ispre-eminently alpine in its habits; it seldom descends much belowthe limit of perpetual snow, and therefore haunts even a more loftyand sterile situation than the guanaco. It is a singular fact that itdoes not serve so well for preserving meat as sea-salt from theCape de Verd islands; and a merchant at Buenos Ayres told me thathe considered it as fifty per cent less valuable.

    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.
