Captain William Bligh recorded the most famous mutiny in sea history when a group of his men, led by Fletcher Christian, forced him from his ship onto a small launch and cast him adrift into the sea. Was Bligh a harsh sea captain whose vicious cruelty forced his men to mutiny? Or was Fletcher Christian greedy for power and unjustified in taking command? Was Bligh the tyrant of legend? Or was he one of the most lenient commanders of a Pacific exploration ship of that period? Sail with Captain Bligh on the H.M.S. Bounty, and then follow his incredible quest for survival during his 3,600-mile trip to Timor in an open boat. It's a timeless tale of man's heroic struggle to survive against all odds!

Author Bio: William Bligh

William Bligh (1754-1817) was an officer of the British Royal Navy and a colonial administrator eventually rising in rank to vice admiral. During his command of the Bounty in 1789, a notorious mutiny occurred. William Bligh and eighteen of his loyal seamen were expelled from the Bounty onto a small boat and began the greatest open-boat voyage in history, sailing some 4,000 miles to protection in Timor. Bligh returned to Britain and reported the mutiny to the Admiralty two years and two and a half months after leaving England.
