In a larger view of the novel, this chapter then is the beginning of a journey that will carry Kumalo  through all types of new and different experiences. As old as he is, we will watch him develop new  insights into the nature of life and society.

    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.
