Captain Bligh’s Portable Nightmare

by Toohey, John

CAD $19.99 CAD $6.99

At dawn on April 28, 1789, Captain William Bligh and 18 men from HMS Bounty were put into a 23-foot launch and abandoned in the middle of the Pacific. They did not perish, but sailed 4,162 miles to safety in Java–an epic achievement. Battered by storms, the men suffered crippling illness, near starvation, and attacks by islanders. In Toohey’s hands, this is a gripping tale of seafaring, exploration, and mutiny, in which Bligh is portrayed not as cruel and foulmouthed–as some histories cast him–but as a man of his times and a true hero.
