Hello everyone my name is Nelson Crockett. I’m taking this class because it is required as part of my major and the online version works out with my schedule this year. I grew up here in Alaska in a native village called Brevig Mission. Then as soon as I finished with high school I joined the army as a combat engineer. I stayed in for 3 and a half years with one tour in Afghanistan.
While I’m taking this class I looking forward being able to take a look at the types of stories that have been passed down over several centuries among several different cultures. I find being able to take a look at this type of literature to be very interesting. Mainly because it shows both some of the ideals of a society and its imperfections.
