I enjoyed this book of 410 pages about the famous mutiny. Read it if you want to learn the true story of what happened (versus the incomplete and distorted version as presented by the 1962 film starring Marlon Brando). You might find it handy to make a copy of the Ship's Company in order to refer to the names of the 44 sailors on the Bounty other than Lieutenant Bligh and Fletcher Christian. I just wish the chapter ( titled "Portsmouth") were shorter although I understand the need to detail the background of the court-martial judges. I appreciated the follow-up information about the men on the Bounty after the trials ended.
