He thought to build a fire under a tree, but the snow-covered tree released its snow and put out the fire. With frozen hands, he tried again but couldn’t pick up a match and therefore he wouldn’t be able to start a spark.

The Best Story So Far:”To Build A Fire” The best short story that I’ve read so far in class is “To Build A Fire” by Jack London. The story is about an unnamed man during during a really cold day in Alaska. The man sets off with his dog and a lunch and heads for the cabin on Henderson Creek to meet up with the boys.

It was his dream to be in the wild and he decided to pursue it. I respect his decisions and I personally believe it was a good decision other than the fact of him dying. He made the infinitive decision to do all of this so why stop
Similar to McCandless, Knievel was being reckless, which had affected others around him. McCandless had left his family to travel to Alaska and live in the wild in search of enlightenment. After his death, word about his journey spread around the country. Many viewed McCandless to be egotistical due to the fact that he left his entire life to pursue his personal desires, and he didn’t think about how others would feel after he left, or if he did, he didn’t care. McCandless was also seen as ignorant.

That is exactly what the hiker in “To Build a Fire” did to himself. He refused to listen to the old man who probably experienced the harsh temperatures for himself or has seen other hikers end up the same way, and he ended up dying because of his stubbornness and his obsession with proving his manliness. This is a story that everyone, especially young people, should read and learn from. They should realize that it isn’t always better to experience something yourself, and that it is smart to listen to the advice of your
Jack London’s back ground and personal beliefs are reflected in his short story To Build a Fire. In this short story, the narrator is traveling through the harsh environment of the Yukon but due to his lack of imagination and experience he finds himself in a life threating situation. As the man navigates a frozen river, he is in high alert of streams flowing beneath the snow that could cause the ice to give way beneath him. After avoiding patches of the streams, he sits down to eat his lunch but forgets to build a fire. When they start back down the trail, the dog has to be forcefully called to the man’s heals because the instincts in the animal are telling it to burrow down in the snow.
In the book "InTo The Wild" by Jon Krakauer is a shocking story of how a man named Christopher Johnson McCandless graduates from college then he goes to Lake Mead National Recreation Area then he dissapears then everything takes a turn.

He bases his actions by intellectuality—like scientific indicators, such as when he bases the temperature with degrees Fahrenheit. The man decided against or never thought about what would occur with the use of instincts and without the use of them, he wasn’t informed of exactly how dangerous some actions were. Where the man lacks due to free will, it exonerates his responsibility of the accidents that he has. London writes for the second accident as his “own fault or, rather, his mistake.” Fault implies an individual has full or complete responsibility.
