The special focus of Bligh!, unlike other books about the Captain, is that the material is taken from the actual log of Captain Bligh. The book also features the logs of his boatswain, the surgeon aboard the Pandora, who searched for the missing mutineers, and the captain of the Blossom, who found them.

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.

The True Story: Mutiny on the Bounty. Lieutenant William Bligh's Diary. Vice Admiral William Bligh, FRS, RN (9 September 1754 - 7 December 1817) was an officer of the British Royal Navy and a colonial administrator. A historic mutiny occurred during his command of HMS Bounty in 1789; Bligh and his loyal men made a remarkable voyage to Timor, after being set adrift in the Bounty's launch by the mutineers. Fifteen years after the Bounty mutiny, he was appointed Governor of New South Wales in Australia, with orders to clean up the corrupt rum trade of the New South Wales Corps, resulting in the so-called Rum Rebellion.

This is the first complete publication of a rare collection of letters and poems written from 1790 to 1792—many of which have never appeared in print—telling the true story of Peter Heywood, a young Royal Navy midshipman on H.M.S. Bounty accused of mutiny, and his devoted sister, Nessy, who worked tirelessly to save him from being condemned and executed for this crime. This edition is a faithful transcription of a manuscript held at the Newberry Library in Chicago—one of only five surviving manuscripts.
