    Today, around 40 people live on Pitcairn Island, and all but a handful are descendants of the Bounty mutineers. Since the rest of the regiment has gone home, they want to be discharged rather than fight another year with any other regiment. In gratitude, the captain presents Crusoe with gifts of wine, food, and clothing. Active Themes Robinson sent the captain to speak to this second group of mutineers and see if they might help recover the ship. Robinson and the captain then debated what to do with their prisoners.

    Even years later, discoveries about the destiny of its survivors are still The Mutineers book there. After a month journey, the Bounty arrived in Tahiti in October and remained there for more than five months. Tempted to move to Brazil, Crusoe decides against the idea because he is reluctant to become Catholic. Interestingly, the wreck of the Bounty was discovered in off Pitcairn Island, by Luis Marden, an American photographer and diver who worked with National Geographic. The Hollywood film Mutiny on the Bounty is perhaps the best known, with Marlon Brando cast as Fletcher Christian who led the mutineers. Bligh hoped to find water and food on Tofua, then proceed to the nearby island of Tongatapu to seek help from King Poulaho whom he knew from his visit with Cook in provisioning the boat for a voyage to the Dutch East Indies.

    The Bounty saga is unhappy in The Mutineers book every one of its aspects — the plan, voyage, rising, consequences, corollaries, legacies — and no one emerges in the end in any sense heroic. Several films and books on the subject have ensured that the tragic history of the Bounty remains fresh in people's memories, generation after generation. No fresh water source was found, and almost no food was in their vicinity, besides sea lions and birds. Later defeated and executed by the resurrected Lord Commander. He summoned the crew and read the Articles of Warat which Fryer backed down. The route taken was not the Endeavour Strait, but a narrower southerly passage later known as the Prince of Wales Channel.
