Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

 Caroline Alexander has written for The New Yorker, Granta, Condé Nast Traveler, Smithsonian, Outside, and National Geographic and is the author of four previous books.

Editorial Reviews

With all the drama and intrigue of a rollicking adventure novel, Alexander’s beautifully written and painstakingly researched book goes a long way to rehabilitate one of history’s most notorious villains. (Entertainment Weekly) Stirring... With this and her previous book, The Endurance, she has made the wondrous genre of open-boat-voyage narratives still more wondrous... A sea mist hangs over this age-old tale. Alexander dispels it to the reader’s fascination. (Verlyn Klinkenborg, The New York Times Book Review, front page)
