The Bounty : the true story of the mutiny on the Bounty / Caroline


Prelude -- Pandora -- Bounty -- Voyage out -- Tahiti -- Mutiny -- Return

-- Portsmouth -- Court-martial -- Defense -- Sentence -- Judgment --

Latitude 25*S, Longitude 130*W -- Home is the sailor.

More than two centuries have passed since Master's Mate Fletcher Christian

mutinied against Lieutenant Bligh on a small, armed transport vessel

called Bounty. Why the details of this obscure adventure at the end of the

world remain vivid and enthralling is as intriguing as the truth behind

the legend. In giving the Bounty mutiny its historical due, Caroline

Alexander has chosen to frame her narrative by focusing on the

court-martial of the ten mutineers who were captured in Tahiti and brought

to justice in England. This fresh perspective revivifies the entire saga,

and the salty, colorful language of the captured men themselves conjures

the events of that April morning in 1789, when Christian's breakdown

impelled every man on a fateful course: Bligh and his loyalists on the

historic open boat voyage that revealed him to be one of history's great

navigators; Christian on his restless exile; and the captured mutineers

toward their day in court. As the book unfolds, each figure emerges as a

full-blown character caught up in a drama that may well end on the

gallows. And as Alexander shows, it was in a desperate fight to escape

hanging that one of the accused defendants deliberately spun the mutiny

into the myth we know today-of the tyrannical Lieutenant Bligh of the

Bounty. Ultimately, Alexander concludes that the Bounty mutiny was sparked

by that most unpredictable, combustible, and human of situations-the

chemistry between strong personalities living in close quarters. Her

account of the voyage, the trial, and the surprising fates of Bligh,

Christian, and the mutineers is an epic of ambition, passion, pride, and

duty at the dawn of the Romantic era.

One vast winter count : the Native American West before Lewis and Clark /

Colin G. Calloway.

Part 1: the West before 1500 -- Pioneers -- Singing up a new world -- Part

2: Invaders south and north, 1500-1730 -- Sons of the sun and people of

the earth -- Rebellions and reconquests -- Calumet and Fleur-de-lys --

Part 3: Winning and losing the war in the West, 1700-1800 -- The coming of

the centaurs -- People in between and people on the edge -- The killing

years -- Epilogue: the slave in the chariot.

This sweeping account traces the histories of the Native peoples of the

American West from their arrival thousands of years ago to the early years

of the nineteenth century. Colin G. Calloway depicts Indian country west

of the Appalachians to the Pacific, with emphasis on conflict and change.

Calloway's narrative includes: the first inhabitants and their early

pursuit of big-game animals; the diffusion of corn and how it transformed

American Indian life; the Spanish invasion and Indian resistance to

Spanish colonialism; French-Indian relations in the heart of the

continent; the diffusion of horses and horse culture; the collision of

rival European empires and the experiences of Indian peoples whose

homelands became imperial borderlands; and the dramatic events between the

American Revolution and the arrival of Lewis and Clark. The account ends

as a new American nation emerged independent of the British Empire, took

over the trans-Mississippi West, and began to expand its own empire based

on the concept of liberty and the acquisition of Indian land. This book

offers a new look at the early history of the region--a blending of

ethnohistory, colonial history, and frontier history. It features Native

voices and perspectives; a fluid integration of a wide range of oral and

archival sources from across the West; a reconstruction of cultural

histories; and balanced consideration of controversial subjects and

issues. Calloway offers a glimpse at the lives of generations of Native

peoples in a western land soon to be overrun.
