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

  3. 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.
