Gruesome scene I read as a child
It was either a book or a short story; Iím not sure which. I was about twelve years old when I read it, so about 1975ish. It was about an explorer, or perhaps a prospector, who is isolated in a frigid arctic-type environment with a dog. He is near death and his hands are almost frostbitten. So he kills his dog, slices open the dogís belly, and inserts his hands deep into the dogís innards to warm them up and prevent them from becoming completely frostbitten. Since to the best of my memory Iíve never read Call of the Wild, I thought maybe it was that, but I looked it up and thereís no mention anywhere of such a scene. Anybody know what Iím talking about?
