  1. Ahoy; Brief descriptions about 2 well researched books I am reading. First: The True Story of the Mutiny of the Bounty. By Caroline Alexander 2003, ISBN-978-0-14-200469-2 This book is extremely detailed and very well researched. All of the events are well described. Before the voyage. The voyage out to the South Pacific. The mutiny, The Pandora. The return of Bligh to Coupang (Dutch Colony) and the trail of the mutineers. The author takes all this information and creates a seamless narrative. Many of the sources are letters from the sailors to family and diaries that the men kept. In the back of the book it has all the sources for each chapter and select biographies. Best book I have read about the HMS Bounty. Second: The Slave Ship - A Human History. By Marcus Rideker (professor of History) 2007 ISBN-978-0-14-311425-3 Another book that is well researched. The book discusses in detail the life, death and terror of the slave trade. The evolution of it. The so called "Middle Passage" From Africa to either the West Indies or the USA. Insurrections, the lives of sailors, death and diseases on particular slave ships. This book is not just about what happens to the slaves but everything that has to do with it. The people involved and then several last chapters of the abolition of slavery. You read about accounts that are quoted from actual court proceedings. Again well researched with lots of sources quoted for each chapter in the book. Thank you for reading my brief review. Marc

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
