Epigraph: To Comrades of Camp-Fire and Muster I have ridden the boundary wires with you; I have sweated in yard and shed; I have lighted the red camp-fires with you In the dust of a thousand head; Through the West and the wanton ways of her You were always my comrade s true, And from out of the nights and days of her I have woven these songs for You!
