Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant This whole trilogy is an amazing find, and well worth the time and effort. Not only does it let you see the two sides of a precarious moral battle, but you come to respect, and also despise, men from both parties. Men Against the Sea is a triumph of literature, and if you've read this far, don't stop there. Pitcairn's island is fascinating from a sociological standpoint and is also written well enough to be enjoyable for anyone who appreciates literature. Two thumbs up.
