In a flashback fifteen lines long, Sinclair Lewis recites an episode from the life of the great- grandmother of his hero, Martin Arrowsmith. As a motherless girl of fourteen, the great-grandmother  has chosen to go on westward in a wagon with her sick father and her tattered brothers and sisters  rather than to return to their relatives in Cincinnati. Fourteen-year-old Martin Arrowsmith, son of the owner of the New York Clothing Bazaar, is reading  Gray's  Anatomy  in Doc Vickerson's office in Elk Mills, in the state of Winnemac. The year is 1897. Martin is the unpaid assistant of Doc and takes charge of the office whenever Doc makes a call.  Although Martin reads steadily all afternoon from the section on the lymphatic system, he also enjoys  exhibiting to his gang the dreadful and fascinating skeleton with one gold tooth when Doc is absent.

    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.
