After days of travel on both train and boat, Buck discovers that he is in the primitive North, and there  he rapidly learns to conform to the laws of the primitive new world. For example, he encounters such  problems as how to work as a member of a dog team pulling a sled, how to burrow into a hole in the  snow in which to sleep, how to survive perpetual hunger pains, and how to rely on his native  intelligence and his animal instincts.

    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.
