Pitcairn's Island




Pitcairn's Island - Mutiny



Pitcairn's Island is the deeply moving and magnifi­cently exciting sequel to Mutiny on the Bounty and Men Against the Sea. It is the true story of the mutineers after they had set sail from Tahiti in search of sanctuary. Led by Fletcher Christian, nine English­men, with twelve Tahitian women and six Tahitian men, landed on tiny Pitcairn's Island, burned their old ship, the Bounty, and set about to build a para­dise. There, cut off from the world, unfolds the tale of Christian and his beautiful Polynesian wife, Maimiti, of ferocity aroused by the shortage of women, of wild orgies which resulted from tragedy, and finally, long after the horror was ended, of the idyllic life fashioned from disaster by the survivors.
