Unformatted text preview: good for shipropes. Translation The Beormas told him many stories, both of their own land and of the lands around them, but he didn’t know what the truth was, because he did not see it for himself. The Finns and the Beormas seemed to him to speak nearly the same language. Besides surveying the land, he mainly went for the walruses, because their teeth contain very fine bone – they brought some of the teeth to the king – and their hide is very good for ship-rope.

    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.
