Reviews - What do customers think about Pitcairn's Island, and the islanders, in 1850?
A small but fascinating chunk of Pitcairn history Jan 1, 2003
This book was absolutely great! It was written in 1850, and is about things that happened on Pitcairn around the time of the 30's and 40's. Includes copies of letters to the Admiralty from captains who had stopped on the Island. Has the information contained in the Pitcairn's Island Register from 1790 to 1850. Also has a section on the laws of the Island. This book was rather high, but I feel it was well worth the price, to get the piece of history it contains. The author was "marooned" on the island for about 3 weeks when his shipmates left him and a couple others, rather than spend an extra hour to pick them up. (They were going to California--did they REALLY think the extra hour would have killed them???) The author's journal for that time is in the book, as well as the other things that happened to him when he left (that was pretty interesting, also). The author seems a very sincere and kind man, and dearly loved the Pitcairn people.
