Summary (From the publisher):

Here, for the first time in a single volume, are collected the most popular verses of the great Klondike poet.

His famous ballads of the North are here. Also included are unforgettable pictures of artists, grisettes and models f the merry tragic life of bohemian Paris, and verses inspired by the war that swept across that same gay city.

And not to be overlooked are the many expressions of the poet's own homespun philosophy -- his comments on women, on life and death, ambition, and success and failure, which strike a responsive chord in the reader's heart.

Gaiety, humor, nostalgia and pathos fill every page, along with the genuine Service ring of virility which has made his verse loved throughout the English reading world.
