Storyboard Text

  • “Undoubtedly it was colder than fifty below - how much colder he did not know. But the temperature did not matter. He was bound for the old claim on the left fork of Henderson Creek, where the boys were already.”
  • “He had forgotten to build a fire and thaw out. He chuckled at his foolishness, and as he chuckled he noted the numbness creeping into the exposed fingers.”
  • “The dog was disappointed and yearned back toward the fire … But the man whistled, and spoke to it with the sound of whip-lashes, and the dog swung in at the man’s heels and followed after.”
  • “At a place where there were no signs, where the soft, unbroken snow seemed to advertise solidity beneath, the man broke through … he would have to build a fire and dry out his foot-gear.”
  • “It grew like an avalanche, and it descended without warning upon the man and the fire, and the fire was blotted out!”
  • “The old-timer on Sulphur Creek was right, he thought in the moment of controlled despair that ensued: after fifty below, a man should travel with a partner … Each twig gushed a puff of smoke and went out.”
