The Bounty - The True Story of the Mutiny on the Bounty

Write a Review

More than two centuries after Masteras Mate Fletcher Christian led a mutiny against Lieutenant William Bligh on a small, armed transport vessel called "Bounty," the true story of this enthralling adventure has become obscured by the legend. Combining vivid characterization and deft storytelling, Caroline Alexander shatters the centuries-old myths surrounding this story. She brilliantly shows how, in a desperate attempt to save one man from the gallows and another from ignominy, two powerful families came together and began to create the version of history we know today. The true story of the mutiny on the "Bounty" is an epic of duty and heroism, pride and power, and the assassination of a brave manas honor at the dawn of the Romantic age.
