FLETCHER CHRISTIAN: THE LAST PIECE OF THE PUZZLE

After the Bounty Mutiny, Fletcher Christian died on Pitcairn Island, or was this a lie? For how could he be dead when he was seen in England years later?

Captain Bligh was cleared of all responsibility for the ship’s uprising and the Rum Rebellion in New South Wales which followed. Was the controversy of both the reason why Christian’s rescue was kept secret? Or did Bligh and Australia’s famous sheep pioneer and politician, John Macarthur, perpetuate the myth for personal gain?

This is the story of these three remarkable men, of their love and loathing of each other and the fascinating part they played in the unsolved mystery of Christian’s fate.

Its fact-based solution will intrigue and astound.
