American writers James Norman Hall and Charles Nordhoff are best known for the Bounty Trilogy, which includes: Mutiny on the Bounty (1932), Men Against the Sea (1934) and Pitcairn's Island (1934). The authors met in 1919 when they were asked to collaborate on a history of the Lafayette Flying Corps, and were soon commissioned by Harper's Magazine to write travel articles set in the South Pacific. They travelled together to Tahiti for research and inspiration, where Nordhoff remained for twenty years, and Hall for life. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
