    In the short story, “To Build a Fire,” what are some of the mistakes in judgment that the man make during the course of the story? What is his fatal flaw? What lessons do you think the author illustrates by contrasting the man and the dog in the story? How do they assess situations differently? @Mehek14

    first mistake would be that he decided to travel alone

    he steps on ice, and the ice breaks, causing him to fall in cold water

    and he builds a fire under a tree because it's easy to get small branches, but snow falls from the tree and puts out the fire

    I think his flaw was that he was overconfident
