To Build a Fire
The lesson that might be learned in this story is that never go somewhere out in the cold without someone accompanying you might end up dead like the man in build a fire by Jack London. Also the man was chewing Tabasco so his lips where freezing with icy cycles on his lips. Also the man wasted all matches for the last fire and failed to start the fire. The lesson is that you should always have someone out with you in the cold places so it's less hard on you to do all the work. The man also could not pick up the dog without somebody else and this is why the lesson is what it is.
