In a personal but objective narrative based on the H.M.S. Bounty's log, Commander William Bligh himself tells of the stormy voyage to Tahiti, his crew's insatiable attachment to the island paradise, and the incredible 3,600-mile journey to safety after the mutineers cast him—and eighteen loyal crew members—adrift in a small, open boat with few supplies.
Captain William Bligh recorded the most famous mutiny in sea history when a group of his men, led by Fletcher Christian, forced him from his ship onto a small launch and cast him adrift into the sea. Was Bligh a harsh sea captain whose vicious cruelty forced his men to mutiny? Or was Fletcher Christian greedy for power and unjustified in taking command? Was Bligh the tyrant of legend? Or was he one of the most lenient commanders of a Pacific exploration ship of that period?
Sail with Captain Bligh on the H.M.S. Bounty, and then follow his incredible quest for survival during his 3,600-mile trip to Timor in an open boat. It's a timeless tale of man's heroic struggle to survive against all odds!
