To Build a Fire

When you picture the main character of this story, what age do you think he is? The narrator is somewhat vague on this; but judging by the descriptions the story gives you, how old do you think the man is? Why might that matter?

I picture the "man" to be in his twenties. Old enough to be working in the Klondike, and young enough to find it an adventure. Old enough to take on the job, but too young to realize the danger.
