About the Book

On April 28, 1789, a band of mutineers turned an ordinary voyage into an unforgettable legend. The conflict between Lieutenant William Bligh and Master’s Mate Fletcher Christian of the H.M.S. Bounty is one of the most famous stories in maritime history. Many volumes have been written about the mutiny, its protagonists and its aftermath on Pitcairn Island.
From Bligh’s firsthand account in 1790 through 2006, this copiously illustrated reference book examines more than 1700 books, articles and other materials dealing with the mutiny and its legacy.
Major works, including nonfiction accounts, fiction, poetry, articles, plays and movies, are given analytical discussions. These works (presented chronologically) trace the history of the emotions and opinions of the public, allowing consideration of each work within the cultural and scholarly context of its period. Lesser works and related readings, also annotated, are provided as well. Appendices direct readers to Internet resources and notable documentaries. The book is thoroughly indexed.
