Captain Bligh's Second Chance by George Tobin Captain Bligh's Second Chance, Hardback (February 2007)

While most people are familiar with the 'Mutiny on the Bounty', few realize that Bligh was sent back to the South Pacific. This time, with two ships, a proper officer corps, and a detachment of Marines to keep order, he succeeded in completing his mission to transplant breadfruit to the West Indies. This work provides a portrait of Bligh.
