The plan adopted was nearlysimilar to that of the great hunting-matches in India: a line wasformed reaching across the island, with the intention of drivingthe natives into a cul-de- sac on Tasman's peninsula. Bynoe informs me that during a former voyage he observed thesame circumstance on the banks of the Rio Gallegos. I was always amused when overtaking one of these great monsters, asit was quietly pacing along, to see how suddenly, the instant Ipassed, it would draw in its head and legs, and uttering a deephiss fall to the ground with a heavy sound, as if struck dead. One of these grows to avery large size, but, from the extreme softness of its wood, isuseless; another sort affords excellent timber for ship-building. I think it would bedifficult to find a body of men better adapted for the high officewhich they fulfil.

    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.
