Rhymes of a Red Cross Man. Robert Service. 1933 Ed. WWI Poetry. Mint condition.
Robert Service (1874 – 1958) was a poet and writer who has often been called "the Bard of the Yukon". Although, probably best known for his poems "The Shooting of Dan McGrew, " his WWI poetry, and "The Cremation of Sam McGee" from his first book, Songs of a Sourdough (1907), Service was incredibly prolific and also wrote thriller novels which were made into silent movies, and acted as a war correspondent in France during the first War. During WWI he worked as an ambulance driver with the American Red Cross.
He was born in Scotland, moved to Canada when he was 21 yrs old, traveled in the US, and in northern Canada and the US. He lived in the Yukon, California and in France. He visited other countries, always observant, and used his observations in his writing. To this day, his poetry is read and recited with pleasure.
