Tom Swift and His Airship

Victor Appleton

Book Overview: 

In Tom Swift and His Airship, Tom Swift has finished his latest invention- the Red Cloud, a fast and innovative airship. Tom is anxious for a cross-country trial, but just before he and his friends take off, the Shopton bank is robbed. No sooner is Tom in the air than he is blamed for the robbery. Suddenly, he's a wanted fugitive but doesn't know why until he's half-way across the country. With no safe harbor or friend on the land below, Tom must race back to Shopton to clear his name before he's shot out of the sky. (Summary by Wikipedia)

But the mule appeared to be satisfied with what he had done, and, as he rode off, Tom looked back to see the colored man laboring to get the sleepy, animal started.

The lad did not tell his father of the adventure with Morse, but he related the occurrence to Mr. Sharp.

"I'd like to get hold of that scoundrel, and the others in the gang!" exclaimed the balloonist. "I'd take him up in the airship, and drop him down into the lake. He's a bad man. So are the others. Wonder what they want around here?"

"That's what's puzzling me," admitted Tom. "I hope dad doesn't hear about them or he will be sure to worry; and maybe it will interfere with his new ideas."

"He hasn't told you yet what he's engaged in inventing; has he?"

"No, and I don't like to ask him. He said the other day, though, that it would rival our airship, but in a differ. . . Read More

Along with the Hardy Boys mystery series, the Bobbsey twins, and (yes, I'll admit it) even the occasional Nancy Drew mystery, Tom Swift was an early favorite of my youth. I started reading these books by the time I was in second grade, and enjoyed them until near the end of my elementary school year

Tom Swift has to deal with the bully Andy Foger when he provides false evidence pointing at Tom for robbing the bank. after a few adventures, Tom and his friends find the evidence they need to clear their name and return home.
4 out of 5 stars. Great book. Has a lot of elements that make a great stor

After spending lots of time reading boy books written in the mid to late 1800s, I've finally continued my time travel experience to the early 1900s. The Tom Swift series is one of the earliest books in the Stratemeyer Syndicate (think The Bobbsey Twins Series, Hardy Boys Complete Series Set Books 1-

From what I understand, this book was published only seven years after the Wright Brothers flew the first heavier-than-air vehicle at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. It is an airship, with elements of a dirigible and an airplane. I don't know if the technology described in the book actually works, but i

Our hero Tom Swift! in this epic story must take on... the local bullies!! (What? Really? Not ninjas? Not Nazis? Huh. Okay.) Can Tom Swift fly his air ship through bullets, fire and storm to clear his name!?!?!??!

Tom built an airship and finally caught the gang that has annoyed them the past 5 months. I like Tom Swift because he never gives up - he has lots of endurance

7 out of 10

This one was almost too predictable, even for a boy's fiction tale. About the only interesting thing to happen was for Tom Swift's main rival to get his comeuppance not once but twice. I also have to say that having the same antagonists for three books in a row, and dullish bad guys at that, is just

I never got to read Tom Swift when I was younger. This was the first of his books that I've read. It's too bad that I didn't get there sooner, really, since I think the young inventor might have been one of my heroes. The writing is simple but charming. On the downside, Appleton's method of writing
