ROBERT SERVICE Robert Service, Bard of the Yukon, stands literally at death's door on the Mackenzie River in early July 1911. He was a passenger on the Hudson's Bay Co. steamer Mackenzie River along with George Douglas and others on his way back to the Yukon via the Rat and Porcupine Rivers. The boat stopped at this trappers cabin at the junction of the Salt River and the Mackenzie. Read about this truly ironic northern moment in this month's issue.
