Basic Situation a man is hiking in the Yukon by h imself and his dog. He is trying to get to the camp; it is freezing cold.
Rising Action -dog falls in the ice -tries to make a fire after falling into "trap"- his feet and legs are frozen, -builds a fire to warm himself -can't get matches going -snow/moss fall and puts out his fire
Basic situation a man is kinking with his dog in the Yukon and he is trying to get to the camp. It is freezing cold.
Rising Action -falls into "trap", builds fire -fingers and legs gone numb -snow fell on fire, went out -can't control matches w/ fingers
1 example of Foreshadowing -When he said Old Timer said to never go alone, and then he does, and he admits that Old Timer is right, the reader knows that something bad will happen to him because he didn't trust an experienced friend.
1 example of Foreshadowing When it says, "He was a newcomer...and did not fully realize the importance of the cold". The reader knows something will happen to him because of his ignorance
climax when he is trying to catch and kill the dog
resolution the man is in peace and not in pain anymore because he is dead
theme man can't defeat nature
