This chapter starts very much like Chapter 1, with a description of the countryside around Ixopo, but  instead of leading down to the washed-out, eroded gullies and barren lands, it leads up to the  highlands, rich and fertile, and to "High Place," the home of James Jarvis. Jarvis is shown to be quite an ordinary man, one who is disturbed by the plight of the natives, yet so  concerned with his own problems that he finds he cannot solve the plight of the natives or his own  problems. It is easier not to act than to act, yet he continues to be conscious of a deteriorating state  of affairs. His love of the land matches that shown earlier by Stephen. The land was his father's before him.  This is the place where he was born and grew up, where he married and fathered a son, and where  the son grew up.

    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.
