This antiquarian book contains a collection of poems written by Robert William Service. A delightful collection of poetic tales of northern gold rush living that offers incredible insights into the lives and outlooks of the men and women of the region, these poems will appeal to any lovers of poetry, and constitute a veritable must-read for fans of Service's work. The poems include: "To The Man of the High North", "Men of the High North", "The Ballad of the Northern Lights", "The Ballad of the Black Fox Skin", "The Ballad of Pious Pete", "The Ballad of Blasphemous Bill", and many others. Robert William Service was a British-Canadian poet and writer, best known for his poems "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" and "The Cremation of Sam McGee". Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
