The man thinks, in spite of the fact that he is a "greenhorn," that he is much smarter than the old timers who caution him against going out in the cold. Once he goes out, he does not take care and so falls through the ice and builds a fire under a snow-laden tree which dooms him to freezing to death. He does not even take clues from his accompanying dog who has the skills to survive and who does, as the man prepares for his death, go on to the camp where the man had hoped to arrive.
