Overview

"Where are you going, Tom?" asked Mr. Barton Swift of his son as the young man was slowly pushing his motor-cycle out of the yard toward the country road. "You look as though you had some object in view."
"So I have, dad. I'm going over to Lanton."
"To Lanton? What for?"
"I want to have a look at that motor-boat."
"Which boat is that, Tom? I don't recall your speaking about a boat over at Lanton. What do you want to look at it for?"
"It's the motor-boat those fellows had who tried to get away with your turbine model invention, dad. The one they used at the old General Harkness mansion, in the woods near the lake, and the same boat that fellow used when he got away from me the day I was chasing him here."
"Oh, yes, I remember now. But what is the boat doing over at Lanton?"
"That's where it belongs. It's the property of Mr. Bently Hastings. The thieves stole it from him, and when they ran away from the old mansion, the time Mr. Damon and I raided the place, they left the boat on the lake. I turned it over to the county authorities, and they found out it belonged to Mr. Hastings. He has it back now, but I understand it's somewhat damaged, and he wants to get rid of it. He's going to sell it at auction to-day, and I thought I'd go over and take a look at it. You see-"
"Yes, I see, Tom," exclaimed Mr. Swift with a laugh. "I see what you're aiming at. You want a motor-boat, and you're going all around Robin Hood's barn to get at it."

    A great 2nd story after the motorcycle adventures

    This book is the 2nd one and leaves off where the motorcycle adventures finished. Tom has obtained the motorboat from the previous story and now begins to improve its design and starts to adventure along the lake. During these trips, he encounters additional characters that will soon be routine participants in his later journies.

    I am a big fan of these classic Tom stories because they are easy to read and yet take place about 70 years ago when a lot of Tom and his father's inventions that were spawned from the writer's creativity are in fact now common place in today's society.

    Also of interest is the language and writing styles differ from current norms. The phrases and words used to describe people and events (common place at the time) would be minimally alarming and at the worst offensive. So caution when handing this to a <16 year old or be prepared to explain why the book used words not favored in present conversation.

    Best book ever!

    Tom Swift and his motorcycle is about a young inventor who has to try to win back his father's pattens from a gang of theifs. It has alot of action and motorcycles running up trees with people on them. They are very olf boooks (101 years old) but very exciting. But, there might be some word that you do not know on them.
