This is the law of the Yukon, that only the Strong shall survive; That surely the Weak shall perish, and only the Fit survive. Dissolute, damned and despairful, crippled and palsied and slain, This is the Will of the Yukon,Lo, how she makes it plain! Robert W. ServiceLaw of the Yukon.
Theres a land where the mountains are nameless And the rivers all run God knows where; There are lives that are erring and aimless, And deaths that just hang by a hair; There are hardships that nobody reckons; There are valleys unpeopled and still; Theres a landoh, it beckons and beckons, And I want to go backand I will. Robert W. ServiceSpell of the Yukon.
