In a wildly entertaining chronicle, acclaimed historian Diana Preston retells the unbelievable story of the HMS Bounty alongside a lesser-known tale from Australia’s founding. Jumping between Tahiti, Pitcairn and Polynesia, the crew of the Bounty overthrows Captain William Bligh who survives 48 days in an open-air boat. Meanwhile, nine escaped Australian convicts travel 3,250 miles across open ocean to the same port Bligh reached only months before. A stunning dual-history of exploration and treachery in which the losers are chained to palm trees on remote islands.
