A Home, a wife, and a family:
A job on the great outside-
But he heard the call of Alaska
And left them - unsatisified.
Winters of long hungry hardships,
Summers of pestridden hear:-
Dicing with deat for a grubstake:
Risking his life for meat:
Scorning the letters recalling;
Forgetting the friens he had known,
Turning his back on the Outside-
Facing the future alone.
A cabin, and squaw, and a fishwheel,
A bend in the rivers flow-
A couple of sad-eyed halfbreeds,
He stayed there - a Sourdough.
