Description - A Life of Soolivan by Calum Ferguson

Ending up in the notorious Tuxpan Jail in Mexico, he was released only after the involvement of the British consul, and he returned to the family croft in Lewis, where he lived until his death, twenty years later, in 1956. During these years he frequently entertained visitors to the croft with stories of his adventures - his was a forthright, vernacular style of story-telling, humorous and robust, never sentimental or self-pitying.
