Before reading the trilogy I did spend some time doing research on the Internet to learn a little more about the mutiny. This is why I say that the book was predictable. Having read up on the layup to the mutiny, the trip that Captain Bligh and his group took, and what happened to the mutineers that ended up on Pitcairn's Island, I knew what to expect.
While much of what is in the book is what the authors made up, they seem to have done a lot of research and tried to make the book as accurate as possible. They admit that this was the most difficult of the books to document but I think they did a great job. Obviously, though, it's a cross between fiction and fact.
The Wyeth illustrations are great.
The way the food was rationed, the methods of treatment of maladies of the men, navigating and enduring the endless hours of watches at the tiller, and the constant need to bail water because the boat was overloaded were compelling stories.
The third part of the trilogy was about the trip to Pitcairn's Island by the mutineers. I was able to view the island on Google Earth to see the descriptions from the book. But I've told you enough. If you have an interest in sea-going history, survival, or just the way your fellow human beings cope with their environments and themselves, I highly recommend this book.
