Overview

The story of the “mutiny on the Bounty” has been told before—as a sea saga, as a romance, as an illustration of patriotism, as a missionary opportunity, and as a research project in anthropology. All of these facts, and more, converge and focus and continue to speak in the Miscellany, the Pitcairn Island newspaper.

Like the log of a ship, the Miscellany recorded objectively and in detail the day-to-day voyage of Pitcairn through the good and the bad, the almost superhuman struggles, the joys, the deprivations and adventures of the Pitcairn voyager-inhabitants.

The title of this book retains the original possessive form used by Captain Carteret in naming the island in honor of Major Pitcairn of the British Marines.
