Description

Peter Corris uses his formidable storytelling skills to bring us the true story of the events surrounding the mutiny on the bounty. A fascinating and brilliantly-told tale of rollicking ship life and the seductive charm of the Pacific Islands. While researching his family ancestry, historian Peter Corris discovers an old Manx connection to history's most famous mutineer, Fletcher Christian. Years later a mysterious parcel addressed to Corris arrives, containing two old journals. The first, an intimate and adventurous chronicle of American Henry Corkill's life at sea, is inextricably bound through history and blood to the second - that of Fletcher Christian, acting lieutenant on the Bounty and English rebel. Translated from eighteenth century Manx , Christian's journal reveals the dark and violent history of the mutiny and the fateful beginnings of Pitcairn Island. Binding together three lives, two histories and a fractured world of new - and old - cultures, The Journal of Fletcher Christian is a riveting tale of men and madness, and a dazzling work of the imagination.
