JACKET BLURB:
Just before sunrise, more than two centuries ago, Fletcher Christian mutinied against Lieutenant William Bligh on - small, armed transport vessel called Bounty. This act impelled every man on a fateful course — Bligh and his followers on a historic open-boat voyage across the Pacific - Christian and his followers on their restless exile. Ten of the Bounty's crew were eventually captured in Tahiti and brought back to England in irons to face their day in court. It was in the dynamics and politics of their court-martial and its aftermath that the story we know — or think we know — as the mutiny on the Bounty was shaped.
Caroline Alexander's new book is the definitive account of one of the most infamous episodes in the history of seagoing voyages. Based on extensive original research, her book casts radical new light on the mutiny, on Bligh's character and on a welter of family connections and special interests that play crucial roles in the story. Using contemporary accounts, and particularly the mutineers' own testimony, she allows the men themselves to conjure the events and transport the reader back to the deck of the Bounty  to exotic islands in the South Pacific and to the back rooms of British naval power.
Combining vivid characterization and deft story telling Alexander 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 legend we know today. Her book shatters the centuries-old myths surrounding this tale, revealing the true story of the mutiny on the Bounty to be an epic of duty and heroism, pride and power, and the assassination of a brave man's honour at the dawn of the Romantic age.
