Shortly after the Bounty mutiny, William Bligh was commissioned to lead another voyage on the Providence in 1791— a journey that culminated in the successful transport of breadfruit and botanical specimens from the West Indies. But just weeks after the Providence left port, Bligh succumbed to illness and took to bed—often near death—for most of the trip.

Captain Bligh's Second Chance is the fascinating memoir of Lieutenant George Tobin, who accompanied Bligh on the Providence voyage and documented his illnesses and the effects on the crew. Tobin's account reveals that the voyage of Providence is more than the turning point in Bligh's career; it is the key to understanding his whole life and character.
