 About the Book 

Most people are aware of the story of the Mutiny on the Bounty. Few, however, know what happened to the mutineers. They did not all sail to Pitcairn Island- indeed only nine of them did, leaving sixteen in Tahiti by their own choice. The Royal NavyMoreMost people are aware of the story of the Mutiny on the Bounty. Few, however, know what happened to the mutineers. They did not all sail to Pitcairn Island- indeed only nine of them did, leaving sixteen in Tahiti by their own choice. The Royal Navy was not about to let them remain at large and sent an armed frigate, HMS Pandora, to the Pacific to capture them and return them to England for trial. When Fortune Frowns is the story of this voyage, the capture of the remaining mutineers, and the perilous and disastrous return voyage to England. Storms, tropical islands, monotony, and shipwreck all figured into the epic tale, unearthed and carefully researched by noted maritime author William H. White. A well crafted conclusion to one of the most heinous and well known stories of the Age of Sail.
