About this title

Synopsis:

From dust jacket notes: "The mutiny on the Bounty: Hollywood and the best-selling literary treatments made it seem like fiction. But it was real. The descendants of the Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian concubines have populated tiny, remote Pitcairn Island in the South Seas for nearly two centuries. The saga of their origin and evolution constitutes the greatest sea adventure story in Western history and literature - and Pitcairn: Children of Mutiny is the fascinating last chapter in that story. Pitcairn: Children of Mutiny is both a dramatic reassessment of the celebrated mutiny and a unique examination of the almost totally isolated Pitcairn way of life today. Author Ian M. Ball reviewed the documentation that survives in British, American and Australian archives, traveled to Pitcairn itself, and in Part I, he presents a portrait of the mutiny startlingly different than any we have seen before...."
