More than two centuries after Master's 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 man's honor at the dawn of the Romantic age.

    " Very detailed in its research, lengthy in its coverage (I would say a little too lengthy at 410 pages of text), and slow in some places. Probably best suited for people who love British naval history... not for your average reader. "

    " Started reading this to discuss this story for our history class. Amazing read. "

    " I thought this book told a fascinating story. Before reading this book, I only knew the traditional views of Bligh, a tyrannical captain, and the heroic Fletcher Christian. I enjoyed discovering the truth about both men and the other men on the Bounty. "

    " Not a great book, but an absolutely fascinating story. The most intriguing part was what became of the mutineers.

    Why read fiction when there are true stories like this out there? "
