In the story, To Build a Fire the man makes many mistakes in judgment during his journey, which ultimately ended in his death. He repeatedly exposed his skin to the harsh conditions of the -75˚ weather which concluded to him having frostbite. He also was walking on the thin layer of ice that was on the surface of the springs that he fell into which soaked his clothes up to his waist. The man also did not bring anyone to accompany him during his journey but instead brought his husky that ended up being smarter than the man is. The man lit 70 matches at once in attempt to make a fire which failed, burning his hand in the process. The man eventually built a fire, however, it was under a tree which dropped a mound of snow which smothered the fire. His fatal flow was ultimately when he repeatedly removed his mittens from his hands and eventually lost all feeling. He eventually took sides with death and slept his way to death, freezing in his sleep.
