The epic tale of the mutiny on the British ship Bounty has fascinated readers for more than 200 years and has inspired several novels and four movies. Now, Patrick O'Brien has retold this true story for young readers for the first time.
In 1788, the Bounty sailed from England to the island of Tahiti, legendary for its charming people and natural beauty. The Bounty's men, most of whom had spent their lives in cramped and smelly ships, eating maggoty bread, thought they had found heaven on earth. But there was trouble brewing below deck. The strains of the voyage and the allure of Tahiti set the stage for betrayal, hardships, and murder.
Patrick O'Brien's thrilling account of the Bounty's tragic voyage brings the story to life so that young readers can share in one of history's great adventure stories.
