The Mutiny on Board H. M. S. Bounty

    An okay read

    The Mutiny On Board HMS Bounty Captain William Bligh records his adventure. He records the painful, sad, and happy times that he experienced. During they¿re sailing they almost caught a humongous fish to eat for lunch. But one little tiny mistake the fish got loose later they landed on Australia (New Holland). The people there were nice. Until later when they attacked with rocks!! Only one Seaman died because he saved Captain Bligh. After they got Captain Bligh on board the ausrailians chased them through the water. One of the seamen got an idea, they started to take off their clothes and throw them into the water. Hoping they would stop and get the clothes. They were lucky the Australians stopped and got the clothes. Then they rowed away as fast as they could. At last they made it to Timor and everyone and I mean everyone was so happy, to finally reach they¿re destination! And to all be alive. J
