This first edition is the most comprehensive bibliography of the works of British/Canadian poet-author Robert W. Service (1874-1958). As a young man, Service migrated to north-western Canada from his native Britain. The exuberant people and magnificent scenery of British Columbia and the Yukon filled him with an ebullient enthusiasm which was reflected and captured in his early poetry and his later novels. Beginning with his "Songs of a Sourdough" in 1907 to his "Songs of the High North," published in 1959, Service wrote a prodigious stream of poems and rough, frontier literature. In this well-researched and scholarly bibliography, Peter Mitham has produced a welcomed bibliography of the works of Robert W. Service.
