Summary
"Unsurpassed as a gripping tale of historical adventure, 'Men Against the Sea' is the epic account of the eighteen loyal men who, in the aftermath of the mutiny on the 'Bounty, ' are set adrift on the high seas in a 23-foot open launch, with Captain William Bligh at the helm. Alone on uncharted waters, the men struggle to survive on scant rations, taking pains to avoid war canoes and inhabited islands under cover of night. Their 3,600-mile voyage from the island of Tofoa in the Friendly Archipelago to the Dutch East Indies remains to this day one of the greatest feats of courage and endurance in maritime history." *** "The second in a three-volume narrative of the voyage of the H.M.S. Bounty, telling what happened to the crew, captain, and mutineers after the famous mutiny." *** "In the sequel to 'Mutiny on the Bounty, ' Captain Bligh and 18 men sail from the Friendly Islands of the South Pacific to Timor in the East Indies."
