The Mutiny That Created A Nation

Fletcher Christian and The Founding Of Pitcairn Island

Of all the sea tales told down the ages, none has held its mystique so long as the mutiny on board HMS Bounty

In the year of 1789 somewhere in the vast Pacific Ocean; the mutinous crew of the HMS Bounty turn on their loathed Captain.

Jeering and laughing the men push him into a overcrowded rowing boat.

Wearing only his night-gown and surrounded by an endless blue sea; Captain William Bligh knows his chances of survival are slim.

As his tiny rowboat begins to drift away he swears at his old crew that they will face justice once he reaches London.

But he would have to find them first.
