A Footnote to History: Eight Years of Trouble in Samoa

By Robert Louis Stevenson
Free
Book Description

Published in 1892, the author's experiences in Samoa inspired this history of their Civil War, which began in 1889. Stevenson's natural affinity for the underdog put him squarely in the camp of the indigenous inhabitants who were fighting against the colonial powers of England, Germany, and America.
