Description

To survive one mutiny might be considered fortunate, but to survive two is extraordinary. Here is the true story of William Bligh, the man at the centre of the mutiny on The Bounty, and one of the most remarkable figures in early Australian history.

"Our aim in this series of stories from Australia's past is to present a living history in a voice that young readers will find engaging and inclusive. Living history, not only in the sense that it involves vivid scenes and colourful characters, but also in the sense that it deals with issues and themes that readers can identify as relevant to their own lives." Michael Sedunary
