Unsurpassed as a gripping tale of historical adventure, Men Against the Sea is the epic account of the eighteen loyal men who, in the aftermath of the mutiny on the Bounty, are set adrift on the high seas in a 23-foot open launch, with Captain William Bligh at the helm. Alone on uncharted waters, the men struggle to survive on scant rations, taking pains to avoid war canoes and inhabited islands under cover of night. Their 3,600-mile voyage from the island of Tofoa in the Friendly Archipelago to the Dutch East Indies remains to this day one of the greatest feats of courage and endurance in maritime history.
