Abstract: This is an information-packed handbook on Norfolk Island located between Australia and New Zealand. It traces the history of the Bounty mutineers from their initial south sea "paradise" through the rapid descent into a murderous hell on Pitcairn Island, followed by a deeply religious period and then relocation to the "near-paradise" of Norfolk Island. The book concentrates on the lives and culture of Norfolk's inhabitants today but demonstrates how much their ancestors' extraordinary past still plays a dominant role in the daily life of their descendants.
