Great For Cruising and Other Open Water Sailors
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
For those with a good grasp on world coastal geography and enjoy open water sailing its a very good experience and very well performed. Bligh's side of the story has been lost in the Hollywood nonsense and as a navigator he deserves better. It is not a pedestrian read and those expecting the Gable/Brando/Gibson dramatic treatment will be disappointed. It is a thoughtful description of exploration and what live at sea in the 18th Century was like. I would recommend to some friends without qualification (i.e. those who enjoy the Lewis and Clark Journals in the original) and probably not to others but the performance is excellent.
What other book might you compare The Mutiny on Board H.M.S. Bounty to and why?
Lewis and Clark Journals, Beyond the 100th Meridian
