Demon of the Waters, by Gregory Gibson
The mutiny of the whale-ship Globe in the South Pacific in 1825 was one of the goriest incidents in American maritime history and has achieved legendary status in seafaring lore. At the centre of the mutiny was a young man raised in a staunch Nantucket Quaker family, Samuel Comstock, one of the most bizarre and frightening figures who ever went to sea. This is an account of the legendary mutiny, packed with incident and detail.
