Now this is historical fiction the way it should be written! The high seas and mutiny and south sea islands! The famous Bounty incident and aftermath is written with such a flair for the real-life characters, it's almost impossible to put down. I resorted to reading under the covers with a flashlight even though my childhood days are long ago. The first part of the trilogy focuses upon the mutiny and what led up to it. The second part shows us the incredible voyage of Captain Bligh and his little rowboat of loyalists after they were cruelly abandoned at sea. The final third of the book brings us to Pitcairn Island, where the mutineers went to live, having burnt the Bounty and forced to live together on a rocky inhospitable island.This book did enough to make me visit Norfolk Island, which is where the ancestors of the mutineers ended up living when they left Pitcairn.

The best Kindle The Mutiny on the Bounty Trilogy I love sea stories and this one is one of the best.I first read Mutiny on the Bounty when I was in the Navy. The Captain of the destroyer I was stationed on saw me walking around with the book and told me that in naval history circles, the Bounty mutiny was much researched and discussed because it was an anomaly in that Captain Bligh was much less ruthless than most Captains of the Line at that time. Naval historians are still trying to figure out why Bligh and the Bounty and not other ships of the line whose captains were much more harsh when it came to the discipline and punishment of the crew. The first book of the trilogy deals with the events that led up to the mutiny. I later was able to obtain all three books of the trilogy, and after re-reading the mutiny, went on to the second volume, Men Against the Sea. After the mutiny, Bligh and several men who were loyal to him were placed in a 23 foot long boat and cast adrift. In the ensuing months, Bligh navigated the boat 3600 miles to safe harbor. To this day it is considered one of the most daring feats of seamanship to ever take place.Third in the trilogy is Pitcairn's Island. This is the story of Fletcher Christian and the mutineers who sail the Bounty back to Tahiti where they drop off the remainder of the men who were against the mutiny. They also collect the women they cared for during their breadfruit tree gathering along with a number of Tahitian men who wanted to join up with Christian and his men and the whole lot set off to find a place where they can live without fear of being found by the British who will certainly hang them for mutiny. They eventually discover and settle on Pitcairn's Island where they scuttle the Bounty so that none can escape. However, life does not go well for the mutineers and their friends. Hate and greed lead to war and most of the mutineers, including Christian are killed. Anyone who loves tales of the sea has probably read this trilogy. Those who have not should head for the bookstore or library.
