How did Gulliver reach Brobdingnag?

      During a storm, which was followed by a strong wind west-southwest, the author's ship was driven about five hundred leagues to the east. On the south side there was a small neck of land jutting out into the sea, with a shallow creek that could not hold a ship of above one hundred tons. Therefore, in the hope of fresh water, the captain sent a dozen of his men well armed in the long-boat, with vessels to get water from the island. The author, who wanted to see the island, accompanied those men. When they came to the island, they saw no river or spring, the crewmen therefore wandered on the shore to find some fresh water near the sea, and the author walked alone about a mile on the other side. When the author began to feel weary and saw nothing to entertain his curiosity he returned gently down towards the creek; and, to his astonishment, he saw that the crewmen had already got into the boat and were rowing for life to the ship as an enormous creature was walking after them in the sea as fast as it could but the boat had already gone far out of its reach, leaving the author behind in the land of these giant creatures, which was known as Brobdingnag.
