FROM THE AUTHOR: I take pleasure in once more introducing to you the three chums, Jerry, Ned and Bob, whose previous adventures you have read about in the other books of “The Motor Boys... More > Series.” I trust you all will be glad to meet them again, and to see what further befalls them in a new line of activity. Having had many adventures on land the boys decide to try what may be in store for them afloat. In their swift motor boat, the Dartaway, they not only have lots of fun, but a series of strenuous adventures.

Now, having given you a hint of what this book contains I will say good-bye for the present, hoping soon to be able to tell you about further doings of the three companions, in their fine craft, by means of which they traveled many miles.< Less

FROM THE AUTHOR: In this ninth book in the Motor Boys Series, Jerry, Ned and Bob decide after they have had adventures on land and water, the only place left for them to see sights is up in the air,... More > above the clouds. At first this plan is considered rather dubious, though considerable progress has been made toward men sailing about in the upper regions by means of dirigible balloons or aeroplanes, the science is still far from perfected. When they attend an aero carnival, and witnessed the flight of a large dirigible, they decided there's nothing for them to do but to attempt a trip on one themselves. They form the acquaintance of a veteran balloon maker, who has a plan for a novel motor ship. This combines a dirigible and an aeroplane. After some consideration the boys furnished him the money to build one. All is not smooth sailing, literally as well as figuratively speaking. They have a number of difficulties, not the least of which were caused by their old enemy, Noddy Nixon.< Less

I decided, in this, the tenth volume of the “Motor Boys Series,” to tell you some further adventures of Jerry, Ned and Bob, in their motor ship, Comet, and the reason I did so was because... More > so many of you told me how much you liked the other airship story, “The Motor Boys in the Clouds.” Airships are now getting to be a regular feature of our daily life, and, while not yet as numerous as automobiles, it is only a question of time when they will be. You remember, I suppose, when automobiles were not very numerous, but there is not a city in this country to-day, where several can not be seen. Following their first experiences in the wonderful motor ship they had constructed, our three friends, Jerry, Bob and Ned, were ready for more adventures. By a combination of circumstances they learned of a party of white men who were held captive by a strange tribe of Indians in a valley of the Rocky Mountains. They decided to rescue them, and they did not succeed without considerable peril.< Less

13-The Motor Boys After a Fortune By Clarence Young
Paperback: $6.99

Some persons think thirteen is unlucky. I do not, and I am sure you do not, either. So I venture to hope that I have been lucky enough to write for you, in this thirteenth volume, a book you will... More > like better than any of the preceding ones that I have been happy to pen. Certainly, Jerry, Ned and Bob, when they went after the radium treasure, on Snake Island, in the Grand Canyon of the Colorado, had a chance to believe in “signs” if they were so inclined. But when they saw the strange “ghosts” they were not a bit frightened, and, later on, they discovered the cause of them. This story, though a complete tale in itself, is linked with the others in the series. It tells how the Motor Boys, hearing through Professor Snodgrass, of a place where radium was supposed to be located, set off to find it. They had many adventures, and were in not a little danger. Then, too, they had to proceed against Noddy Nixon, who had unlawfully taken their motorship.< Less

When Jerry, Ned and Bob returned from an automobile ride one day, and saw a great crowd at the railroad station, they were excited. They were made more so when they saw Jim Nestor, the foreman of the... More > mine in which they held an interest, and another Westerner, wildly digging on the tracks. And when they heard the murmurs of “gold,” they did not know what to think. And from then on they were involved in happenings that did not cease when they set out to recover the sixty nuggets, so strangely hidden on the border. Though the gold on the railroad tracks did not amount to much, the other pocket of the precious yellow metal did. In this book is the search Professor Snodgrass made for some luminous snakes, and how he found them; and an account of how Noddy Nixon tried to get away from the motor boys the gold they worked so hard for, and how our heroes braved even the perils of a band of Blackfeet Indians, who had escaped from their reservation.< Less

FROM THE AUTHOR: It hardly seems possible that I have written as many as eleven volumes of this series, yet such is the case. The present book is just one short of a dozen, and if you are pleased... More > with this, perhaps I shall be encouraged to write the twelfth book. As for the present volume, I have endeavored to give a stirring account of what happened to Jerry, Ned and Bob after they had started out on an apparently simple errand to see a certain man. Ned Slade’s father was in business trouble, and the lad and his friends volunteered to ask aid from a Mr. Jackson. They started out to find him, only to learn that he had gone to a balloon carnival, as he was interested in air craft. The boys went to the aviation meet, and arrived just as Mr. Jackson went up in his big dirigible balloon. Instead of coming back, as he was expected to do, the millionaire sent a wireless message stating that he and his friends were being blown out to sea in a hurricane. Find out how it ends!< Less
