Eskimo Nell is insatiable and likes her miners. She often encounters a male protagonist by the name of Mexican Pete. She knows when the miners arrive and when they have to leave. She is an infidel, as good as a harem, and is definitely untamed. Often Mexican Pete has a time finding a warm woman to cuddle up to when he is panning on the Bonanza Creek, but Eskimo Nell always wets his whistle.
Even though the ballad talks of Eskimo Nell, there is much poetry composed throughout the book to give the reader insight to many different levels. The reader is able to view a good many distinctive layers of poetry verse that give thought, bring on a smile, or a huge amount of blushing.
The Lorelei - Siren of the Sailors, is a quaint poem I enjoyed very much. I could almost visualize the Lorelei as she lured the sailors in. The Galloping Major is another poem that I enjoyed. One can almost get a visual of this verse when reading it. The Single Swinger brought out a good point about seeing things different in another’s eyes. I like this poem.
From dirty old men, horny old men, sexy women, some not, and whores along the way, this collection of diverse poems and verse is not for the faint at heart. The Ballad of Eskimo Nell has lyrics intended for mature readers with a touch of wit to each one. With some explicit language and situations, the reader does get a feel of what is actually taking place. Colin Alexander enlists some endnotes at the end of some of the writing style so the reader will understand the saying for some of the language used. He has a knack for making the prose to be quite interesting.
