1 Captain Bligh and Mr. Christian: The Men and the Mutiny Hough, Richard
Good. 
Hardcover. Stated 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1973 Dutton. Text clean and unmarked. HEAVY WEAR to jacket: Repaired rips; creases. 320pp, Index, Notes on Sources, B/W photos. Language: English. NOTE: Cannot ship outside U.S. via Global Priority -- Surface or Airmail only. 'The mutiny on the Bounty has fascinated readers for more than 200 years, but no other book on this extraordinary episode in maritime history tells the story as well as this masterly and thrilling account by Richard Hough. ... [I]t is an epic drama of courage, discovery, deceit, and treachery. The story of Fletcher Christian and the rest of the mutineers' discovery of an uninhabited island and their attempt to fashion a community away from the pursuing ships of the Royal Navy is as tense as it is horrific. Captain Bligh's remarkable 3,600-mile voyage to Timor in the ship's open launch is fully described as one of the great feats of navigation. The dismal episode of the Pandora and the remarkable survival of one of the mutineers add further fascinating twists to the story.'--from the publisher.
