Bounty brings a fresh perspective to the familiar story of the mutiny. The narrator is Michael Byrne, the near-blind fiddler employed by Captain Bligh to exercise his crew on the long voyage to Tahiti. Seized by the mutineers, Byrne refused to sail with Fletcher Christian to Pitcairn Island but remained in Tahiti where his fiddle gained him unique entry to the society. After his arrest, he survived the shipwreck of HMS Pandora to be acquitted at the mutineers court martial. An Irish minstrel, his imagination brimming with sea-shanties, he tells a tale which shifts the emphasis away from a quarrel between Englishmen to a heart-breaking quarrel between England and the South Seas.
