The mutiny is one of the most blood-stirring and most often told romances of the sea. The present inhabitants are descendants of the mutineers. They are of mixed blood, but in appearance the Caucasian features predominate. They are notable in Polynesia for virtue, piety, supreme contentment with their island home, and for a simple, patriarchal type of Christianity.
