AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jonathan Swift's story Gulliver's Travels has been a favourite for generations of children, but few would know that many of Gulliver's adventures took place in the South Seas, between Australia and Sumatra. In 1699 Dr Lemuel Gulliver was shipwrecked off the coast of the Northern Territory, cast away on the island of Lilliput and taken prisoner by its tiny inhabitants. This remarkable retelling [...] presents Gulliver's fantastic adventures among the Lilliputians in their authentic setting: the intriguing and exotic lands of the Indonesian archipelago' (Source: back cover).
