Now in paperback, this gripping, horrific, resoundingly acclaimed account of the mutiny on the whaleship Globe in the South Pacific in 1825-one of the goriest incidents in American maritime history-recreates in fresh, vivid, authoritative detail a tragic episode that has achieved legendary status in seafaring lore. -The timeless appeal of dramatic nautical adventure narratives is evidenced by the ongoing success of Nathaniel Philbrick's In the Heart of the Sea, Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm, and Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall's Mutiny on the Bounty.
