Transit of Venus by Rowan Metcalfe( Book )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 114 libraries worldwide
Mauatua is a young girl when James Cook's Endeavour visits Tahiti in 1769 to observe the transit of Venus. Cook returns in 1773. And then, in 1788, the Bounty arrives. The story of the Bounty mutiny is well known. Fletcher Christian's mutineers set Captain William Bligh and others adrift in a ship's boat. Bligh sailed some 5000 kilometres to safety; the mutineers returned to Tahiti before making their way to isolated and uninhabited Pitcairn Island. This novel tells the story from a new and unexpected perspective, that of the Tahitian women who joined the Bounty mutineers and sailed away with them to make new lives
