Robert Service is the great Bard of the Klondike gold rush. Although he arrived to the Yukon in 1904, five years after the rush was over, his poems and ballads capture the spirit of the time like no other. Services most celebrated work is The Creation of Sam McGee. The work is brimming with humor and exquisite imagery. In this web video, Dawson City actress Sue Taylor recites the famous ballad.
