Mutiny on the Bounty (Paperback)
Cherished as one of the most thrilling sea adventures ever recorded, Mutiny on the Bounty has sold millions of copies and enthralled generations of readers around the world in the eight decades since its initial publication. The novel reprises a true story -- the strange, eventful, and tragic voyage of His Majesty's Ship Bounty in 1788-1789, which culminated in Fletcher Christian's mutiny against Captain Bligh -- and reaches peaks of narrative excitement that mark the book indelibly as a modern classic.
The story of the Bounty continues in Men Against the Sea and Pitcairn's Island.
"A superb achievement...Here is what the historical novel should be -- a bit of history brought to life in a book." --New York Times
"A grand book, a great read...Incontestably the finest account of the Bounty story."—James A. Michener
