Summary of the Book 'A Narrative Of The Mutiny On Board The Ship Globe':

I just finished this book last night it was much better than I was expecting. I was on the edge of my seat through much of it. Filled with action adventure and courage I was amazed at the journey and deprivations they endured. The discipline they held to especially on the part of the captain was amazing. A great story I would recommend to anyone.
