This chapter discusses the crew's arrival in Tubuai. Before anchoring the Bounty, a certain geographer named Stuart was ordered by Captain James Cook to examine the reef to find an opening for the anchor. While Stuart was at sea via the boat conducting his task, he was attacked by a number of the natives, armed with long spears, riding in canoes. Some of them boarded in his boat and carried off some of his belongings while natives assembled on the beach “armed with clubs and spears of a shining black wood.” The remainder of the chapter narrates how the crew escaped from the island.
