The special focus of Bligh!, unlike other books about the Captain, is that the material is taken from the actual log of Captain Bligh. The book also features the logs of his boatswain, the surgeon aboard the Pandora, who searched for the missing mutineers, and the captain of the Blossom, who found them.
