Jacket Blurbs:

The Eighteenth Century was an era when brave mariners took their ships beyond the horizon in search of an unknown world. Those chosen to lead these expeditions were exceptional navigators, men who had shown brilliance as they ascended the ranks in the Royal Navy. They were also bloody good sailors.

From ship's boy to vice-admiral, discover how much more there was to Captain Bligh than his infamous bad temper. Meet a twenty-four year-old Master Bligh as he witnesses the demise of his captain and mentor, Cook; a 34-year-old Lieutenant Bligh at the helm of the famous Bounty then cast adrift by Fletcher Christian on an epic forty-seven day open-boat voyage from Tonga to Timor; and a thirty-six-year-old Captain Bligh as he takes HMS Providence, the company of a young Matthew Flinders, on a grand voyage to Tahiti and back. And all this before he was forty.BLIGH MASTER MARINER by Rob Mundley: A scanned image of the jacket’s front.
