Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"Alexander's many fans will find the final, posthumous Sir John Fielding mystery a bittersweet experience. It marks a triumphant return to the series' strengths....enabling one of the worthier recent historical series to go out on a well-deserved high note." (Publishers Weekly)

A must for any Bounty buff

I enjoyed the scholarship of this book. Michael York has a wonderful voice. If you are interested in the historical drama of Bligh, Chrisitan and the mutineers this a must.
