Towards the end of the story, the dog “caught the scent of death” as he approaches the man’s body lying in the snow(London 829). The dog abandons the body without a second thought to find other humans that can provide it with warmth and food because The Man no longer can. This demonstrates that the dog is able to survive because he is adapted to the environment while The Man dies because he is unaware of the power of
The book I choice to read was, “Brian’s Winter”, by Gary Paulsen. This book is about Brian after the private plane he was flying in crashes in to the rugged forests of Canada. Brian went through many struggles while trying the best he could to survive in the harsh environment. Some of the biggest events in this story include when he is attacked by a bear, during the major storms and some of his questionable encounters with the wolves. If I were telling a friend about the entire story in two minutes I would say, Brian’s parents were divorced leading him to visit his father for the first time in a long time.
"The Snow Walker " is a tale of adventure and survival. A story about how the main characters are going to survive in Northern Territories of Canada after a plane crash. Set in the 1950s, it features an arrogant white pilot, Charlie Halliday, who was bribed with walrus tusks into taking a sick Inuit girl to a big city hospital. He is an ignorant racist.

Shackleton and 5 men sail for South Georgia Island and arrive the men on Elephant Island are rescued and not a single man dies on the voyage. The men are constantly faced with bad situations that only the personality as a group made it possible for them to overcome it.
In both stories an example of determinism would be that both of the men’s outcomes were determined by nature. In “Love of Life” nature really did decide his fate, because he was forced to struggle through the frigid weather without shelter, and in the search food. However bleak it may have seemed nature did show him mercy by allowing him to find the ship and allowing the reachers come to his rescue. In “To Build A Fire” nature forced the man through all of the hardships of being cold and hungry for so long that there could only one outcome, his demise at the end of the story by the freezing cold. All in all we can see London’s use of regionalism and naturalism did infact impacted the outcome of the stories he
