Robert William Service was a British-Canadian poet and writer, often called "the Bard of the Yukon".

The “Trail of '98”, is a reference to the Chilkoot Trail and other northern trails scaled by prospectors during the Klondike Gold Rush, which was at its height in 1898. Robert W. Service tells the story of these prospectors in his first novel, The Trail of '98 (1910) which is a vivid novel of men and conditions in the Klondike.
