this is one of my all time favorite short stories by one of my all time favorite authors. jack london. although it's not a 'picture book', i can still paint pictures in my head very well thank to london's writing.

a man on the yukon trail enduring seventy-five degrees below zero weather with no one but a husky wolfdog to keep him company is making his way back to camp, but encounters problems when he falls through snow and gets wet.
