After watching an older movie version of "Mutiny on the Bounty", starring Clark Gable, I wanted to learn the historical account. Thus the 3 stars. One person found this helpful. The Bounty's Boatswain's Mate, James Morrison, possesses an extraodinary degree of intelligence, ingenuity and insight. He writes with a great deal of expertise about the plants, people and geography of Tahiti. While waiting to be arrested in Tahiti, he leads his fellow mutineers in building a seaworthy ship from scratch.
The book offers a fascinating look at life at sea for British seamen in the 18th century, as Britain is just starting to expand its interests into the Pacific region. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Interesting book on the voyage of the Bounty and the people of the islands, and a few insights about the mutiny. James Morrison, boatswain's mate and probable mutineer on the Bounty, was an accomplished liar, so, even though the book is highly entertaining, I can only give it an "I don't like it" rating.
He libels Captain Bligh unconvincingly. Morrison was convicted of mutiny, but escaped hanging partly because influential men in the Admiralty were worried about the scandal his book might cause if he was hanged.

East Dane Designer Men's Fashion. A born storyteller, Morrison presents compelling tales after the Bounty mutiny, beginning with ringleader Fletcher Christian's two bloody, ill-fated attempts to establish a refuge on the island of Tubuai. Pandora , which was charged with bringing the mutineers back to England for trial, and his imprisonment in the horrific Pandora's Box. Morrison once again faces peril when the Pandora sinks on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, where thirty-one of the crew and four prisoners perished. Although Morrison did not actively participate in the Bounty insurrection, he had remained with Fletcher Christian's party, which was enough evidence for condemnation once back in England.

He was released-King George III granted a pardon-and soon after wrote the second half of the journal, which he filled with detailed descriptions of Tahitian life, culture, and natural history. Reviews "At long last we have here a complete 'Everyman's Morrison,' prepared by an established, devoted authority on the Bounty , and for the first time making available to a wider audience a readable and useful modern version of one of the great classic sources to our knowledge not only of the Bounty affair but also of late eighteenth-century Polynesia.
The journal is a primary source for the Bounty story and the only contemporaneous account of events after the mutiny. This publication is an essential work for all those interested in the world of William Bligh, Fletcher Christian and the Tahitians before the onslaught of the Europeans. Has done an excellent job in preparing Morrison's works for publication, and supplemented them with a valuable commentary, which makes After the Bounty a good read for anyone interested in life at sea in the age of sail or the history and culture of the South Seas.

Donald Maxton's passion and perseverance in pursuing his goal is topped only by his impeccable scholarship and thorough knowledge of his subject. Kudos and 'Huzzah for Otaheite' and for Maxton! Through its publication, Morrison's enlightening account of the Bounty mutiny becomes available to the general public for the first time in three quarters of a century.
This book is a 'must have' for any Bounty literature library.
