The Bounty

I’m currently reading The Bounty: The True Story of the Mutiny on the Bounty by Caroline Alexander. It gives a nice taste of 18th century naval life and geo-politics. The narrative focuses on the capture and court-martial of the mutineers rather than on the mutiny itself. Letters, court documents, ship logs, and other historical materials are explored in order to provide a look into the biographies of those involved.
