Lemuel Gulliver always dreamt of travelling the world. But when a violent storm claims his ship and casts him adrift among unchartered lands, he is taken to places that he had never imagined could exist. Gulliver travels to Lilliput, where the inhabitants measure just centimetres tall, and to Brobdingnag, where they tower into the sky like giants. Then he goes to an island floating above the clouds, after which he visits a race of immortals, and f inds himself stranded in a land ruled by horses. Face to face with warring armies and power-hungry kings, each new journey makes Gulliver more desperate to find a way back home. But once he discovers the truth about his own land and himself, returning home becomes the last thing he desires. Written by the renowned satirist Jonathan Swift, Gulliver’s Travels is one of the most fantastical adventure stories ever told.
