Tom Swift is the protagonist in a series of children's adventure novels from the early twentieth century. The stories featured technology (especially transport technology) as the real star.

The books were written under the pseudonym Victor Appleton, who was really Howard Garis for most of the novels, and W. Bert Foster, John Duffield, and Thomas M. Mitchell for some others. The pseudonym was created by Edward Stratemeyer as part of his Stratemeyer Syndicate.

Review - Tom Swift and His Submarine Boat

I found one of the original editions of this book at a library book sale and since it was only $1 ...

Tom, his father and three of his friends build a submarine and race rivals for hidden treasure off Uraguay. They survive several dangers on the way, including capture by the Brazilian navy which threatens to have them shot. The writing is absolutely awful.
