About this book

Whilst sailing between Hawaii and Tahiti in January 1824, the captain and officers of the Nantucket whaling ship, the Globe, were attacked with whaling gear, shot and dumped overboard under the audacious direction of 21 year old Samuel Comstock, whose dream was to found his own tropical kingdom. This eventually led to his own violent death at the hands of his co-mutineers. Only a few members of the Globe's crew survived: two men who were rescued after years on a Pacific atoll, bizarrely spared after their fellows had been slaughtered by the native inhabitants, and a handful more who retook the ship and carried news of the mutiny to the US Navy. This is the story of that fateful mutiny.
