In the annals of seafaring there is no more fascinating account of the South Seas adventure that Pitcairn's Island. The novel unfolds a tale of desperation, profligacy, and betrayal as it chronicles the fate of Fletcher Christian, his fellow mutineers aboard H.M.S Bounty, and a handful of Tahitians, who together take refuge on the loneliest island in the Pacific. Living undiscovered for eighteen years, the settlers of Pitcairn establish a primitive but thriving community whose peace is ultimately shattered by a struggle of bitter vengeance.
