Paradise in Chains - the Bounty mutiny and the founding of Australia
 
(0 reviews)  

Celebrated historian Diana Preston presents betrayals, escapes, and survival at sea in her account of the mutiny of the Bounty and the flight of convicts from the Australian penal colony.

The story of the mutiny of the Bounty and William Bligh and his men 's survival on the open ocean for 48 days and 3,618 miles has become the stuff of legend. But few realise that Bligh 's escape across the seas was not the only open-boat journey in that era of British exploration and colonisation. Nine convicts from the Australian penal colony, led by Mary Bryant, also travelled 3,250 miles across the open ocean and some uncharted seas to land at the same port Bligh had reached only months before.

This meticulously researched dual narrative of survival at sea provides the background and context to explain the thrilling open-boat voyages each party survived and the Pacific Island nations each encountered on their journey to safety.
