Sentimental and highly dramatic, “Just Another Gulliver and His Travels” is the story of how author Patrick Callaghan transformed from a wild young lad to a very content older man. This book follows the story of a young Englishman’s voyage and how he successfully sails away to the safe harbor, catches the trade winds and explores every dream he can to arrive at his destination.

Callaghan never experienced love from his mother. As he grew up, he discovered so many lies and deceit. He was denied the opportunity to hold his paternal father. A hug would have fulfilled a dream. He was also cheated from the dream by his aunt. He discovered a half-sister in America when he was 33 and never connected with his brother; they drifted apart. He was hit by an angry uncle who was his mentor. He was cheated and lost a business that had the makings of a huge success. Foolishly, he allowed good times to override the serious side of life. Thus, he lost his wife, his children, and his beautiful home. A caravan on a farm became his sanctuary, stealing vegetables to survive. He rose from the wilderness and ran with the wind, breaking hearts as he traveled over and through other countries.

Later, he married for a bet in a foreign country and soon divorced, only to marry again to an American Christian who emptied his bank account. She left him homeless and penniless. His family and friends discovered he would rise from the ashes and run again. He enjoyed many women; they enjoyed him. Working hard all his life gave him some lovely rewards. He endeavored to enjoy life to the fullest and make friends wherever he went. Finally, at age 58, he settled down, having found happiness in the Midwest of America.

“Just Another Gulliver and His Travels” is a true story of a rejected child who found success and forgiveness in the end. He did not let his past determine his future. He stood bravely in the storm and when the wind did not blow him away, he masterfully adjusted his sail.
