The story of a family that fought back and won!
George Tobin acted as Captain Bligh's third lieutenant on the second and successful voyage made to the South Seas to collect breadfruit. Tobin was a talented writer and a gifted artist and this is the first publication of his memoir of that voyage.
William Bligh is best known as the cause of the mutiny on the Bounty. He was also the victim of two other mutinies. Yet when he died he was a vice-admiral of the British navy. How was that possible? If ever a person learned to profit from adversity, it was William Bligh.
Roy E. Schreiber has his PhD from London University. He visited many of the places William Bligh saw and like Bligh has been sailing since he was a teenager. Schreiber has skippered assorted boats in the U.S., Great Britain and Australia.
