"To Build a Fire" by Jack London Part 1

Schoonover.jpg

Jeff Hazen reads Jack London's classic 1908 short story, "To Build a Fire."

To Build a Fire is an intimate and harrowing story of a man's journey alone with his dog through the frozen landscape of the Yukon Territory. In classic Jack London style it's man vs. nature as the man tries his best to build a fire before life-threatening frostbite and hypothermia set it.

 
It's the perfect story for a long, cold winter night!
