Reader recommendation: The Bounty

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


Shifting back and forth between Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall's "Bounty Trilogy" – yes, that old chestnut! – and Caroline Alexander's 2003 The Bounty, a reexamination of the mutiny and trials. Together, they give a new appreciation for well-researched historical fiction and they point up how myths and legends blossom from "untruths."
