Rate this:
In 1904, the Canadian Bank of Commerce transferred teller Robert W. Service to the Yukon Territory. Soon, he was famous as the poet who chronicled the Klondike gold rush and the savage beauty of the frozen north. His verse tales of hard-bitten prospectors and sourdoughs make vivid, exciting reading, with such colorful characters as One-Eyed Mike, Dangerous Dan McGrew, Pious Pete, Blasphemous Bill-and, of course, the lady known as Lou. This book features 49 of Service's poems, along with stunning duotone photos of people and landscapes of the Yukon.
