AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sometime after the mutiny on the Bounty, Fletcher Christian died ignominiously on Pitcairn Island – or did he? For how could he be dead when he was seen in England years later? Captain Bligh was cleared of all responsibility for the ship’s uprising – and the later ‘Rum Rebellion’ in New South Wales which followed.

'Was the controversy of both the reason why Christian’s rescue was kept a secret? Or did Bligh and Australia’s famous sheep magnate and politician, John Macarthur, perpetuate the story for personal gain?

'This is the story of these three remarkable men, of their love and loathing of each other and the fascinating part they played in the unsolved mystery of Christian’s fate. Its fact-based solution will enthral you.'
