Re: Mutiny on the Bounty
Yeah, connected to Cook. Probably one of the greatest navigators of all time Cook was. Bligh was a seaman, very few men, even in his day could have made that small boat voyage successfully. Incredible. Bligh has gone down in history as a maniacal power hungry violent SOB, however looking through his logs (apparently) he had very few floggings in any of his commands, much less the outward trip in HMS Bounty.
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
