‘It is as if we find ourselves at the beginning of time...’

It’s 1789. Ideas of revolution and democracy are in the air.

In the South Pacific, Fletcher Christian overthrows Captain Bligh in the famous mutiny on The Bounty.

With the ship’s crew and their Tahitian lovers and followers, Christian sails to the fertile and remote island of Pitcairn. But his dream of creating a society of equals is blown off course: by the greed and suspicions of the sailors, and by the Tahitian’s adherence to their hierarchy and traditions.

With salty humour and growing horror, and inspired by littleknown events, Richard Bean charts a colony’s descent from a new Eden to a brutal dystopia.
