I never read these when I was a boy some 70 yr ago... These are books for YA back then.. The language is old, even for me, being written even before my time... But the concept is interesting and we still don't have trains going that fast.. an easy read, of course... But probably not for today's YA...

More of our collection of youth/teen books for reading to or by our Grand Children, or for reading by our youngest to the children she's babysitting. Much better than the mindless video games, or the subliminal and hypnotic garbage on t.v. Highly recommended for teens in your house!

There were apparently two generations of Tom Swift novels; I was into the ones written in the 1960's. They were very good for me at the time, but they were also tight formula fiction. I can't really read these now, they are too predictable. I did love them when I was a kid.
