Publisher Location: n.p.

Broadside, yellow paper printed in black; 9 3/4 x 13 1/4 inches. Early issue measurements slightly larger than McNeil first issue. Distributed free and reprinted often. This copy signed by Snyder as "Smokey the Bear", since he reportedly declines to sign this broadside which "may be reproduced forever free". Snyder composed the poem for a February 1969 Sierra Club Wilderness Conference, where it was distributed. It has become one of his most popular works: Smokey as a bodhisattva. Top edge creased with short closed tears, bottom edge less so. Near very good. Rare signed.
