The Bounty : The True Story of the Mutiny on the Bounty
Just before sunrise on April 28, 1789, in the far reaches of the South Pacific, Master's Mate Fletcher Christian and three other men, armed with cutlasses, bayonets and a musket, apprehended Lieutenant William Bligh and placed him and eighteen officers and crewmen in a small boat. This mutiny on board His Majesty's armed transport Bounty impelled every man on a fateful course-- Bligh and his loyalists on a historic boat voyage, Christian and his followers on their restless exile. Bligh himself returned to Britain as a hero, and ten of the Bounty's crew were eventually captured in Tahiti and brought back to England in irons to face their day in court.
