To Build a Fire by Jack London
Where is the man originally from?

Note: I have read the whole short story. I'm just a little confused where he is coming because it's a little unclear.

  1. Ms. Sue

    The story says he's a chechaquo, a newcomer. He must have come from the south.

  2. Misty

    Is there specific place he is from? I can't seem to find it.

  3. Ms. Sue

    I didn't see a specific place either. I think London didn't intend to name a specific place. He just made it obvious that the man came from somewhere further south that didn't have such bitter cold.

  4. Misty

    Thank you for helping me.

  5. Ms. Sue

    You're welcome.
