    Biography of Robert William Service a poet and writer who has often been called "the Bard of the Yukon".

He attended Glasgow's Hillhead High School.

    Service moved to Canada at the age of 21 and travelled to Vancouver Island, British Columbia with his Buffalo Bill outfit and dreams of becoming a cowboy. He settled in the Latin Quarterposing as a painter. Though he was smitten, "MacLean was looking for a man of education and means to support her" so was not that interested. The dip comes however, after WWII, when we get a glimpse of Service returning to France from the USA where he has escaped to sit out the war and where he has written screenplays for Hollywood while kicking his heels there!
