Captain Bligh’s Portable Nightmare: From the Bounty to Safety -- 4,162 Miles Across the Pacific in a Rowing Boat
John Toohey (au). On April 28, 1789, British Capt. William Bligh & 18 men from HMS Bounty were herded onto a 23-foot launch & abandoned in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Covering 4,162 miles to Java, the boat was battered by storms, & the men on board suffered crippling illness, & near starvation. This journey was one of the greatest achievements in the history of European seafaring & a personal triumph for a man who has been misjudged by history. Toohey reveals Bligh’s great mapmaking skills; his guilt over the death of Capt. Cook, with whom he had sailed; the failure of the Bounty expedition & the myths that surround it; & the trials & retributions that followed Bligh’s return to England. Illustrations.
