William Bligh, Fellow of the Royal Society, Vice-Admiral of Britain, one-time Governor of the early Australia when that was probably the most thankless and among the most difficult jobs on earth, "Bread-fruit" Bligh of mutiny fame--there was a Man! Bound to the Navy from the age of seven, at sea from 1769 when he was sixteen, Master with the famous James Cooke in H.M.S. Resolution 1772-74, and with the great Captain at Kealakakua when Cook was slain ; hero of the mutiny on the Bounty ; bringer of Pacific bread-fruit to the West Indies in the Providence ; through the thick of the sea wars waged by the English with half of Europe, distinguishing himself as a fighting officer under the greatest admirals in the toughest battles (the incomparable Nelson at Copenhagen, Duncan in the North Sea) : always the bull-voiced, fiery, cocky, capable little Bligh in the thick of things. -- Introduction

"Captain William Bligh recorded the most famous mutiny in sea history when a group of men, led by Fletcher Christian, forced him from his ship onto a small launch and cast him adrift into the sea.

Sail with Captain Bligh, on the Bounty and then follow his incredible quest for survival when cast adrift. It's a timeless tale of man's heroic struggle to survive against all odds!" -- Back cover

Entries from the diary of British Royal Navy officer and colonial governor William Bligh recount the infamous events that took place on the HMS Bounty in 1789. Despite his adventurous career under Captain James Cook and Horatio Nelson, British Royal Navy officer and colonial governor William Bligh (1754-1817) is now remembered for his harsh treatment of his crew that triggered their mutiny in 1789, an account that is told in Bligh's own words in this volume. The commander and 18 seamen were set adrift in an open boat and came ashore after sailing 3600 miles, a tale that continues to captivate readers even today

22 editions published between 1900 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book was fascinating, and very informative. The book gave a detailed account of Lieutent William Bligh's journey to Timor in a small, wooden launch, not more that 23 feet in length. Into this boat went, 19 men, some megar supplies, and some navigational material. The hardships that faced the boat, and men ahead were astounding. It was more astounding that such an overladden boat was able to take a 3,600 mile journey, with the loss of only a singal man
