Lemuel Gulliver is a ships surgeon whose amazing story begins with a shipwreck on the high seas and continues as he encounters a race of miniature people known as Lilliputians. A second journey takes him to Brobdingnag, kingdom of giants, and eventually to the land of the Houyhnhms, horses with reason, who share their domain with the brutish Yahoos. Will Gulliver ever make it home again? Author: Anglo-Irish poet, satirist and clergyman, Jonathan Swift (1667-1745), was born in Dublin to English parents.
