Once the ship was unusable, the men salvaged what they could use off of the ship and moved to a stable area near the ship. Every thing they could grab from the ship was used in some way. The dogs they had brought were used for hunting and also for eating, in some cases. Lifeboats were created from the scavenged wood planks of the ship and tents were made from canvas that was in the vessel, even if there wasn’t anything to place them on except the ice which would soak the cloth and create cold conditions.

(40) It refers to those zeks who do not make it in the gulag, because they scavenge for food instead of earning it by working. "The ones that don't make it are those who lick other men's leftovers..." (4) The hunger will always come back no matter how well you eat at the gulag. "The belly is a demon.

Ambition is when one individual has a desire to achieve something one has been thinking about. Many people in life dream of achieving a big or even a small goal that they want to accomplish in life.

This is seen in the capitalistic story of “To Build a Fire.” The man knew that falling into the water will ultimately lead to his death but if the dog broke through the ice it would survive. In this instance man and beast could work together to maneuver through the harsh environment and would eventually become successful. The dog represents the community the nameless man is within but because this story portrays a capitalist society, the man is unable to build off the knowledge of the animal. London teases the audience with his own political beliefs when the man sends the dog forward to test the ice and after it breaks through the weak ice, he helps it remove the ice from its paw. If “To Build a Fire” were to portray his true beliefs the entire story, a mutual relationship would be created by the nameless man and his surrounding community.
