Professor Joseph Farrell is Emeritus Professor at Strathclyde University. His book, Robert Louis Stevenson in Samoa, is an account of Stevenson’s last four years on the Samoan island of Upola. The Samoans and their culture were to have an enormous influence on the writer, his life and his last works. Joseph Farrell has written a book, part history, part biography which shines new light on one of Scotland’s most celebrated story tellers.
