Synopsis

Gulliver's Travels by Harriet Castor

One day 18th-century ship surgeon Lemuel Gulliver is shipwrecked and lands on a mysterious island. To his astonishment he finds himself captive in a kingdom of tiny people - the Lilliputs. But this is not all that befalls him while he is tossed and turned at sea. He also lands on an curious island full of giants, is a guest on an exotic island that flies through the sky, is suspended in time, and converses with talking horses and an unruly tribe of Yahoos.
