why he made the mistakes
Answers 1Add Yours
1) The man travels alone without a companion.
2) The man doesn't pay close enough attention to the ice, slips through, and exposes his feet to the water.
3) The man builds his last fire under a spruce tree. Snow falls from the tree and puts the fire out...... the man has no more matches.
The man's initial mistakes come because he's prideful and over confident. In the end, he lacks experience.
