Sven Wahlroos, Ph.D., is in a unique position to write about the mutiny on the Bounty. He became fascinated with the subject when he was a little boy in Finland and has studied the literature on it all his life. He is a sailor and an old South Seas hand who has made numerous and extended voyages to the islands of Polynesia.From Library Journal:
Wahlroos has written a thorough companion volume for mutiny on the Bounty buffs. The first part is a strict chronological retelling of the mutiny, month by month. Thus, readers can find out what the mutineers and Christian were doing while Bligh was sailing his open boat back to Timor. The second part is an "Encyclopedia" section which is alphabetical by name, subject, or place. For key characters in the "Encyclopedia" section there is detailed information on that person, as well as references to the appropriate month and year in the "Chronicle" section. Wahlroos has really done his work. His thorough bibliography contains almost 600 citations. In addition, because of his many visits to Tahiti and his extensive South Pacific sailing experience, he is able to sustain the "romantic" flavor of the mutiny story. A remarkable book.
