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.

Deluxe A4 Edition of this new version of the whole story of the Bounty, covers everything, from its disastrous crew selection, the Mutiny, incitement of Polynesian wars, trials, executions, pardons, kidnaps, rapes, enslavement to the brutal island murders. Make no mistake; it may have been the beginning of the Romantic Age but there was nothing romantic about the mutiny on the Bounty, why did Fletcher Christian choose oblivion over common sense on that hot sunny morning so long ago? Was it because far from freeing the crew from oppression he was actually mentally unstable? Where exactly was Peter Heywood and why did half the crew choose certain death in an open boat rather than sail away with the mutineers? Just some of the questions answered in this book, for the first time the whole story, the complete story, including the Pandora's hunt for the mutineers and the Admiralty's revenge, and the true price of Peter Heywood's freedom.

Peter Corris uses his formidable storytelling skills to bring us the 'true story' of the events surrounding the mutiny on the bounty. A fascinating and brilliantly-told tale of rollicking ship life and the seductive charm of the Pacific Islands. While researching his family ancestry, historian Peter Corris discovers an old Manx connection to history's most famous mutineer, Fletcher Christian. Years later a mysterious parcel addressed to Corris arrives, containing two old journals. The first, an intimate and adventurous chronicle of American Henry Corkill's life at sea, is inextricably bound through history and blood to the second - that of Fletcher Christian, acting lieutenant on the Bounty and English rebel. Translated from eighteenth century Manx , Christian's journal reveals the dark and violent history of the mutiny and the fateful beginnings of Pitcairn Island. Binding together three lives, two histories and a fractured world of new - and old - cultures, The Journal of Fletcher Christian is a riveting tale of men and madness, and a dazzling work of the imagination.

In der Idylle des Lake District wird eine zweihundert Jahre alte Moorleiche entdeckt. Der Tote weist bizarre Tätowierungen aus der Südsee auf und bestärkt einen Verdacht, den die junge Literaturwissenschaftlerin Jane Gresham schon länger hegt: Könnte es sich um die sterblichen Überreste von Fletcher Christian handeln, jenem legendären Anführer der Meuterei auf der Bounty? Ist er damals vielleicht heimlich zurückgekehrt und hat mit seiner abenteuerlichen Geschichte William Wordsworth, dem berühmten Dichter und Jugendfreund, den Stoff für ein verschollenes Meisterwerk geliefert? Jane scheint nicht die Einzige zu sein, die auf der Suche nach dem wertvollen Manuskript ist. Denn plötzlich geht der Tod um. Innerhalb kurzer Zeit verlieren alle, bei denen man das Epos vermutet, auf mysteriöse Weise ihr Leben ...

A timeless story of the Royal Navy The story of Captain Bligh, the quest for breadfruit and the mutiny is perhaps one of the most famous concerning the Royal Navy in the great days of sail. Much of this can be attributed to the several motion pictures made of the story. Predictably, fact was far from fiction. This book-written by Captain Bligh himself-reveals a fine and able officer, well regarded by peers and superiors, who set about a difficult task that led ultimately to the infamous ordeal of mutiny within his crew. As Fletcher Christian and the mutineers took his vessel and returned to the pleasures of Tahiti, Bligh and the other loyal unfortunates in his open boat began the long struggle for survival which would see the deaths of many of them. Bligh recounts the entire history of the voyage of the Bounty from commission to mutiny to final deliverance, enhanced with much detail of interest to students of navigation and maritime history. A true classic.
