A reprint of Bligh's own account of the Bounty Mutiny. Bligh published his narrative in 1790 to try and vindicate himself from the charges that he had ill-treated and cruelly abused his crew. Many of these charges had been circulated by the wealthy families of Fletcher Christian and Peter Haywood, and Bligh was not entirely successful in his aim.
