Publishers Description: Here is a popular history on a topic of perennial interest - the mutiny on the Bounty saga and its aftermath.

Norfolk and Pitcairn are two island specks in the South Pacific separated by over 3700 miles but joined in a common heritage. Both have been and still are home to the scattered descendants of the Bounty mutineers. By employing a variety of original sources, including Captain Bligh's diaries, and many handsome illustrations, Clarke has compiled an informative, entertaining account ranging from Norfolk's past as a brutal penal colony ("Hell") to the allure of Tahiti for Captain Cook and the men who followed him ("Paradise"). Bounty trivia abounds.

The story ends with an update of the Norfolk and Pitcairn communities today. Fully illustrated.
