Tom Swift and His Motorcycle

ByVictor Appleton

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This 1910 adventure story, the first of the popular series about a teenage boy, showcases Tom Swift's ingenuity and mechanical aptitude. The action takes off when a group of scoundrels set their sights on stealing Tom's father's newest invention, a turbine engine. This book is a wonderful window on life in America at the beginning of the twentieth century. The main character embodies the positive traits of courage, ingenuity, hard work, determination, honesty, virtue, and service to others. Tom Swift was a popular American fictional hero who had a profound influence on the young people of the time. The story has been completely revised to eliminate racial and gender bias which was unfortunately evident in the original story. None of the excitement or the twists and turns of the adventure have been diminished. The Riverflow Heritage Classic series presents classic books, revised for today's students. The positive message of these books is one which can and should be appreciated by today's youth.
