Book Excerpt: 
. . .Tom did not sleep well the remainder of the night, for his fitful slumbers were disturbed by dreams of enormous caves, filled with diamonds, with dark, shadowy figures trying to put him into a red-hot steel box. Once he awakened with a start, and put his hand under his pillow to feel if the two stones Mr. Jenks had given him, were still there. They had not been disturbed.

Tom made up his mind to find out if the stones were really diamonds, before saying anything to his father about the chance of going to seek Phantom Mountain. And the young inventor wished to get the opinion of some other jeweler than Mr. Track—at least, at first.

The trend of the travel about in our areoplane books being better than the stay ho

Another fun, albeit dated adventure book. I really like the science explanations, even those that are now debunked. I enjoy the light hearted adventures and the fact that everything, even the bad guys, are rather gentle and kind. There is no death. There is no true evil. Yes, there is greed but noth

I liked the whole book and I liked that it was a fun adventure.

It is said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Acting on this belief, Tom Swift is at a local jewelry store buying a diamond pin for Mary Nestor. When the store owner suddenly leaves the store chasing someone who may be planning a heist, Mr. Jenks from Earthquake Island, (a location in the previ

While on Earthquake Island, in book 6 Tom Swift and his Wireless Message , one of the passengers was Barcoe Jenks. Mr Jenks comes to town looking for Tom. He knows of people who are making diamonds in the Rocky Mountains. Tom checks and the diamonds are real. All Mr. Jenks needs is a way to get to t

I read these as a kid; like going back to them for the nostalgia, the outdated science and not very amusing lack of political correctness. But they apparently must have been originally published in newspapers or magazines or something, because the entire plot of the story is frequently repeated thro
