This classic historical novel is the thrilling account of the strange and tragic voyage of HMS Bounty in 1788–89, which culminated in Fletcher Christian's mutiny against commander William Bligh. This book is the first in the trilogy of novels by Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall that continued with 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."—NYTimes
