Crisp, BRAND NEW book measuring 7-1/4"x10-1/4"' . When the mutiny on the Bounty ended in 1790 nine mutineers and nineteen Polynesians took up residence on the previously uninhabited Pitcairn Island in the South Pacific. But rivalry over women led to homicide and by 1808 the only original mutineer was a man named John Adams who headed a quasi-utopian Christian society. A fascinating look at Pitcairn's history, both at the beginning of its habitation through WWII to its 2004 sexual abuse trial. 253 pages. Indexed.
