Amazon.com description: Product Description:

In 1907, a shy bank clerk sent a collection of his poems south from the Yukon to be privately published and shared with a small group of friends. Fate intervened, however, and Robert Service became a household name across North America and throughout the British Commonwealth. Words were Service's lifelong passion, and he set them on many stages. But it was Dan McGrew, Sam McGee and other players of the Great White North who glittered with a golden glow and forever made him the ""Bard of the Yukon"" and the de facto Poet Laureate of Alaska.

Enid Mallory's Robert Service: Under the Spell of the Yukon sheds new light on the life and career of this intriguing and intensely private man, and celebrates the poet's verse. This softcover edition includes a selection of some of Service's most loved poems, including ""The Cremation of Sam McGee,"" ""The Shooting of Dan McGrew,"" ""The Call of the Wild,"" ""The Spell of the Yukon"" and ""The Ballad of Blasphemous Bill.""
