The code, then, is based soundly on recognition and mutual acceptance of differences between the  races on the continent, and Natty never makes the boast that the white man is superior to the natives  because no clear standards of distinction exist. And, in fact, many of the tenets of Natty's code could  be transferred to the Indian code. Many aspects, likewise, are uniquely fitted to Natty's definition of  the code. The white men, most at fault because of their hypocrisy and cupidity, are condemned  severely because they should set better examples based on their religion, education, and traditions.  Nature, for example, can "get to be deformed by mankind," in Natty's words, and the hero's  nostalgia, after his return to Glimmerglass 15 years later, reflects the changes that can be caused by  the incursions of the settlers.

    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.
