This is the story of William Bligh's second and successful voyage to bring breadfruit trees from Tahiti to the West Indies in the year 1791, in the ship HMS Providence. The British Admiralty also gave him the assignment of mapping the treacherous Torres Straits between Australia and New Guinea on his way home. The author of this tale is the young George Tobin, Bligh's young third lieutenant on the Providence. Matthew Flinders was a fellow crew member on the journey. This book describes the journey of the Providence as witnessed by George Tobin and retold through his journal entries and sketches in ink and watercolours.
