Mutiny on the Bounty Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Mutiny on the Bounty

I have read this book three times. Each time I am pulled onto the ship with the men. I can see Tahiti with it's lush green hills and the natives on the beach. The cruelty that the men endure makes me angry that they don't do something sooner.
