Captain Bligh & 18 crew members were abandoned by the crew and had to sail through many storms. At last they reached Timor and after 10 weeks, the captain was well enough to return to England. They learned that some former crew members were on Tahiti and an armed boat name Pandora was sent to bring them back. They found that the mutineers had become settled in to the Tahitian culture so they were returned home. 4 drowned on the way back and the rest were hanged.
