The Mutiny on Board H.M.S. Bounty | [William Bligh]

The Mutiny on Board H.M.S. Bounty

In a personal but objective narrative based on the Bounty's log, Bligh himself tells of the stormy voyage to Tahiti, his crew's insatiable attachment to the island paradise, and the incredible 3,600-mile journey to safety after the mutineers cast him, and 18 loyal crew members, adrift in a small, open boat with few supplies. Bligh's detractors say this narrative has many distortions and omissions; others judge it a remarkably dispassionate record.

    "Great listen"

    This is a wonderful professional narration of one of the most interesting historical seafaring works ever. The description of 18th century Tahiti is fascinating, as is the description of Captain Bligh's open boat journey after the mutiny. Although written in the 18th century, it is very understandable today.

    Definitely worth listening.
