Entries from the diary of British Royal Navy officer and colonial governor William Bligh recount the infamous events that took place on the HMS Bounty in 1789. Despite his adventurous career under Captain James Cook and Horatio Nelson, British Royal Navy officer and colonial governor William Bligh (1754-1817) is now remembered for his harsh treatment of his crew that triggered their mutiny in 1789, an account that is told in Bligh's own words in this volume. The commander and 18 seamen were set adrift in an open boat and came ashore after sailing 3600 miles, a tale that continues to captivate readers even today.
