The story revolves around the "newcomer" and his trip through the freezing Yukon. The main conflict surrounds the man's hesitance to make camp and build a life saving fire. He wants to get to his destination not heeding the nature's warnings. By the time he decides to make camp he can no longer build a fire. He is too cold. The fire represents life and mans' main ally in nature's wild cold.
