The Shooting of Dan McGrew, Service, Robert &  Ted Harrison
1 Service, Robert & Ted Harrison The Shooting of Dan McGrew
Toronto Kids Can Press 1988 0921103352 / 9780921103356 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket 
Top back fore corner slightly bumped, otherwise as new ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; 12 X 9 X 0.40 inches; 32 pages; "The poem about the shooting of the fictitious Dan McGrew was written soon after the gold rush in Dawson City was over; it is an unrelenting story of the greed, jealousy, loneliness and betrayal that were characteristic of the Gold Rush era, and how Dan McGrew became the hated target of a half-crazed miner. While the action of the poem is intense and demanding, the painterly illustrations by Harrison are overwhelmingly powerful; they seem to take on a life of their own, drawing readers' attentions away from the text and toward the surrealistic interpretation of events. With ice-cold blues and violets, accented by vibrant reds and yellows, Harrison creates a pulsating world of hate and destruction; it's a fascinating interpretation of a well-known poem about the frustrations and splendors of the Canadian Gold Rush." (Publisher's Weekly)
