An account of the violent mutiny on the Sydney-bound brig, the Indefatigable in September 1828. The chief officer, Loftgreen, was kept aboard to act as navigator, while the other survivors of the mutiny were cast adrift in a longboat under the leadership of Todd, the second mate. All eventually reached Sydney, Todd and his party via Tahiti and Loftgreen via Guam, where the mutineers were tried and executed.
