PROPERTY FROM THE SPORTING AND TRAVEL LIBRARY OF ARNOLD "JAKE" JOHNSON
The poem present in the volume, "The Old Camp-Fire", is by Bret Harte, the writer and poet perhaps best remembered for his short stories featuring romantic figures of the California Gold Rush. Carl Rungius's paintings, reproduced here, feature a selection of verse by Robert Service, a British-Canadian poet and writer, often called "the Bard of the Yukon". Rungius himself was a leading American wildlife artist during the period, and he spent his career painting in the western United States and Canada.
