BOOK REVIEW | Mutiny, Mayhem, Mythology – Bounty’s Enigmatic Voyage

 

By Alan Frost

Alan Frost is, without doubt, one of Australia’s best two current historians. The other is Geoffrey Blainey. He is fair, objective, apolitical, perceptive, diligent and a very imaginative and thorough researcher. He specialises in British eighteenth century Pacific exploration, discovery and colonisation. He also writes very stylishly. It is thus a blessed relief to read a true, well-written history after a couple of second rate “novelised” ones.
