Read full description of the books:
This is the third book in the Tom Swift series and the third that I have read. Although I was quite the fan of the Hardy Boys and occasionally Nancy Drew, when I couldn't get my hands on a new Hardy Boys edition, I never read Tom Swift as a child. I knew of the Bobbsey Twins and I was vaguely familiar with the concept of the Stratemeyer Syndicate however I never ventured past the Hardy Boys. I wish I had discovered Tom Swift in my youth as I would have thoroughly enjoyed reading these stories. I am reading them now because I did not read them then. Even though they are written for young adults I enjoy them for the time period they are written in. Reading a story of this sort gives an insight into a bygone time that you cannot capture by reading historical nonfiction. I thoroughly enjoy reading history but it is also very informative to read novels from a particular time period in addition, in order to gain a more complete picture. These stories are very simplistic but enjoyable, and for the history buff like me they are a good find.

Read information about the authorVictor Appleton was a house pseudonym used by the Stratemeyer Syndicate and its successors, most famous for being associated with the Tom Swift series of books.
The character of Tom Swift was conceived in 1910 by Edward Stratemeyer, founder of the Stratemeyer Syndicate, a book-packaging company. Stratemeyer invented the series to capitalize on the market for children's science adventure. The Syndicate's authors created the Tom Swift books by first preparing an outline with all the plot elements, followed by drafting and editing the detailed manuscript. The books were published under the house name of Victor Appleton. Edward Stratemeyer and Howard Garis wrote most of the volumes in the original series; Stratemeyer's daughter, Harriet Stratemeyer Adams, wrote the last three volumes. The first Tom Swift series ended in 1941.
In 1954, Harriet Adams created the Tom Swift, Jr., series, which was published under the name "Victor Appleton II". Most titles were outlined and plotted by Adams. The texts were written by various writers, among them William Dougherty, John Almquist, Richard Sklar, James Duncan Lawrence, Tom Mulvey and Richard McKenna. The Tom Swift, Jr., series ended in 1971.
