William Bligh

William Bligh


William Bligh: a stormy story of tempestuous times unpeels the layers of some of the most incredible circumstances in Australia’s colonial history. Some people may have heard of the famous mutiny on the bounty; others may have heard of the rum rebellion coup; but the details in and around these events are largely unknown and truly extraordinary. This is precisely what the latest book reveals. Beautifully written by Michael Sedunary and complimented with the stunning artwork of Australia’s most prominent ceramic artist, Bern Emmerichs - this is an exceptional book.

'Both author and illustrator have brought the tempestuous story of William Bligh to life in this superb history book, which informs, intrigues and involves the reader by asking questions and upturning incorrect facts and prejudices. Bligh was an enthusiastic, ambitious and driven man and this book clearly describes the trajectory that saw him subjected to two mutinies - on the Bounty and the Rum Rebellion.'
