Nordhoff, Charles & Hall, James: The Bounty Trilogy. V1. 30 Oct 2010

Charles Bernard Nordhoff (February 1, 1887 - April 10, 1947) was an English-born American novelist and traveler.
James Norman Hall (April 22, 1887 – July 5, 1951) was an American author best known for the novel Mutiny on the Bounty with co-author Charles Nordhoff.



The first story is Mutiny on the Bounty, with Lieutenant William Bligh aboard the HMS Bounty and the ill-fated voyage to and from Tahiti.

Men Against the Sea is an epic survival tale and legendary small boat journal that still astonishes and shocks today. Bligh’s seamanship and navigational skills allow him and his crew to survive being set adrift. Nineteen men cover over 3,500 miles of ocean in a cramped, fragile open boat on the Pacific Ocean for 18 months. This part of the trilogy is marked by massive storms, hunger, thirst, inability to move, heat and the appalling predicament they face. After reaching a Dutch colonial port, Bligh wants to avenge himself against his former crew. His strong character or character flaws still imbue the man.

The final book in the trilogy is the account of the mutineers seeking to find a hiding place beyond the long arm of the British Navy and death by hanging. Pitcairn Island is selected on account of its remoteness, with the additional asset that the island’s position is incorrectly listed on British naval maps. Here the survivors try to form a functional society and live together with a group of Polynesians who join the Bounty after the mutiny. The beauty of the island is a stark contrast to the new inhabitants with their clashes of cultures and attempts to live a new life.

I read all three in eighth grade, and loved them. I'll look forward to reading them again.

Thanks, weatherwax!

I remember elements of the trilogy being in the Charles Laughton, Clark Gable movie about the mutiny. It will be interesting to read the books.
