Journal de James Morrison, second maitre à bord de la Bounty by James Morrison( Book )

8 editions published between 1966 and 1989 in French and Undetermined and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On ne peut manquer d'être frappé - à la lecture du Journal de Morrison - par deux caractéristiques : la première est cet extraordinaire don d'observation chez un homme que rien n'avait préparé à cela ; la seconde est cette indulgence qu'il manifeste vis-à-vis des Tahitiens lorsque la description de leurs mœurs l'amène à nous décrire ce qui à nos yeux, pourrait passer pour des défauts. Ceux qui, par goût, ont vécu ou vivent à Tahiti seront particulièrement sensibles à cette faiblesse et se demanderont comme nous l'avons fait, si Morrison n'est pas le premier Blanc à avoir subi cet envoûtement auquel tant de nous ont succombé, pour la plus grande joie de leur existence

After the Bounty : a sailor's account of the mutiny and life in the South Seas by James Morrison( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A born storyteller, Morrison presents compelling tales after the Bounty mutiny, beginning with ringleader Fletcher Christian's two bloody, ill-fated attempts to establish a refuge on the island of Tubuai. Morrison then recounts his eighteen month sojourn on Tahiti, where he constructed a seaworthy schooner and closely observed every aspect of the island and its way of life. He also includes the subsequent arrival of H.M.S. Pandora, which was charged with bringing the mutineers back to England for trial, and his imprisonment in the horrific "Pandora's Box." Morrison once again faces peril when the Pandora sinks on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, where thirty-one of the crew and four prisoners perished
