Tom Swift and His Wireless Message

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.3 stars; 65 reviews)

Tom Swift & friends decide to trial an experimental airship near the New Jersey coast, and are unexpectedly swept out to sea by hurricane winds. Unable to steer or navigate without tearing the airship apart, the hapless crew must simply let the storm take them wherever it will. Unfortunately, the storm proves too much for the craft and Tom makes a crash landing on the uninhabited and crumbling Earthquake Island. (Summary by Wikipedia) (4 hr 18 min)
